Wave of WiFi Bugs Won't Bite
MOKB has unleashed flaws in several different wireless card device drivers, Apple's Airport 802.11, Broadcom's BCMWL5.SYS, D-Link's DWL-G132, and NetGear's WG111v2, and another NetGear bug was expected to be today's feature bug. These aren't the first high-profile wireless bugs to emerge: a vulnerability was found in Intel's Centrino, for instance, prior to MoKB and has since been patched, and there have been others as well.
Researchers who found the MOKB wireless bugs, which each allow an attacker to execute code on the victim's machine, say there are more to come. (See Broadcom's Buffer Problem.)
