<p>Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can
recover keys once enough data packets have been captured.
<p>A buffer overflow vulnerability has been discovered in Aircrack-ng.</p>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted dump
file using Aircrack-ng, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Aircrack-ng users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-wireless/aircrack-ng-1.1-r2"
