Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for wpa_supplicant fixes the security issues :

- Several vulnerabilities in standard conforming implementations of the WPA2 protocol have been discovered and published under the code name KRACK. This update remedies those issues in a backwards compatible manner, i.e. the updated wpa_supplicant can interface properly with both vulnerable and patched implementations of WPA2, but an attacker won't be able to exploit the KRACK weaknesses in those connections anymore even if the other party is still vulnerable.

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected wpa_supplicant packages.
