Scientific Linux Security Update : wpa_supplicant on SL7.x x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 79715
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA command injection flaw was found in the way the wpa_cli utility executed action scripts. If wpa_cli was run in daemon mode to execute an action script (specified using the -a command line option), and wpa_supplicant was configured to connect to a P2P group, malicious P2P group parameters could cause wpa_cli to execute arbitrary code.
SolutionUpdate the affected wpa_supplicant and / or wpa_supplicant-debuginfo packages.
