The MadWifi driver provides support for Atheros based IEEE 802.11
Wireless Lan cards.
Md Sohail Ahmad from AirTight Networks has discovered a divison by zero
in the ath_beacon_config() function (CVE-2007-2830). The vendor has
corrected an input validation error in the
ieee80211_ioctl_getwmmparams() and ieee80211_ioctl_getwmmparams()
functions(CVE-207-2831), and an input sanitization error when parsing
nested 802.3 Ethernet frame lengths (CVE-2007-2829).
<impact type="high">
An attacker could send specially crafted packets to a vulnerable host
to exploit one of these vulnerabilities, possibly resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code with root privileges, or a Denial of
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MadWifi users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-wireless/madwifi-ng-;</code>
