1 CVE-2007-5448 20 DoS 2007-10-14 2008-09-05
4.3
None Remote Medium Not required None None Partial
Madwifi 0.9.3.2 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a beacon frame with a large length value in the extended supported rates (xrates) element, which triggers an assertion error, related to net80211/ieee80211_scan_ap.c and net80211/ieee80211_scan_sta.c.
2 CVE-2007-2831 119 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2007-05-23 2012-10-30
10.0
None Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Array index error in the (1) ieee80211_ioctl_getwmmparams and (2) ieee80211_ioctl_setwmmparams functions in net80211/ieee80211_wireless.c in MadWifi before 0.9.3.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash), possibly obtain kernel memory contents, and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large negative array index value.
3 CVE-2007-2830 DoS 2007-05-23 2012-10-30
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The ath_beacon_config function in if_ath.c in MadWifi before 0.9.3.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted beacon interval information when scanning for access points, which triggers a divide-by-zero error.
4 CVE-2007-2829 DoS 2007-05-23 2012-10-30
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The 802.11 network stack in net80211/ieee80211_input.c in MadWifi before 0.9.3.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system hang) via a crafted length field in nested 802.3 Ethernet frames in Fast Frame packets, which results in a NULL pointer dereference.
5 CVE-2006-7180 +Info 2007-03-29 2008-11-15
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
ieee80211_output.c in MadWifi before 0.9.3 sends unencrypted packets before WPA authentication succeeds, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information (related to network structure), and possibly cause a denial of sevice (disrupted authentication) and conduct spoofing attacks.
6 CVE-2006-7179 DoS 2007-03-29 2008-11-15
7.8
None Remote Low Not required None None Complete
ieee80211_input.c in MadWifi before 0.9.3 does not properly process Channel Switch Announcement Information Elements (CSA IEs), which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loss of communication) via a Channel Switch Count less than or equal to one, triggering a channel change.
7 CVE-2006-7178 DoS 2007-03-29 2008-11-15
7.8
None Remote Low Not required None None Complete
MadWifi before 0.9.3 does not properly handle reception of an AUTH frame by an IBSS node, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a certain AUTH frame.
8 CVE-2006-7177 DoS 2007-03-29 2008-11-15
7.8
None Remote Low Not required None None Complete
MadWifi, when Ad-Hoc mode is used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via unspecified vectors that lead to a kernel panic in the ieee80211_input function, related to "packets coming from a 'malicious' WinXP system."
9 CVE-2006-6332 Exec Code Overflow 2006-12-10 2008-09-05
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Stack-based buffer overflow in net80211/ieee80211_wireless.c in MadWifi before 0.9.2.1 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors, related to the encode_ie and giwscan_cb functions.
10 CVE-2005-4835 DoS 2005-12-31 2008-09-10
7.1
None Remote Medium Not required None None Complete
The ath_rate_sample function in the ath_rate/sample/sample.c sample code in MadWifi before 0.9.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (failed KASSERT and system crash) by moving a connected system to a location with low signal strength, and possibly other vectors related to a race condition between interface enabling and packet transmission.
