Aircrack-ng airodump-ng module buffer overflow
|aircrackng-airodumpng-bo (33626)||High Risk|
Aircrack-ng is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the airodump-ng module. By sending a specially-crafted 802.11 packet, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system.
Note: In order to exploit this vulnerability, the application must be logging packets with either the -w or --write option.
Upgrade to the latest version of Aircrack-ng (0.7 stable), available from the Aircrack-ng Web site. See References.
