    Package        : wpa
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3686
    Debian Bug     : 765352
    
    Jouni Malinen discovered an input sanitization issue in the wpa_cli and
    hostapd_cli tools included in the wpa package.  A remote wifi system
    within range could provide a crafted string triggering arbitrary code
    execution running with privileges of the affected wpa_cli or hostapd_cli
    process.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0-3+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wpa packages.
