Debian Bug     : 976106 981971

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in wpa_supplicant and
hostapd.

CVE-2020-12695

    It was discovered that hostapd does not properly handle UPnP
    subscribe messages under certain conditions, allowing an attacker to
    cause a denial of service.

CVE-2021-0326

    It was discovered that wpa_supplicant does not properly process P2P
    (Wi-Fi Direct) group information from active group owners. An
    attacker within radio range of the device running P2P could take
    advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service or potentially
    execute arbitrary code.

CVE-2021-27803

    It was discovered that wpa_supplicant does not properly process
    P2P (Wi-Fi Direct) provision discovery requests. An attacker
    within radio range of the device running P2P could take advantage
    of this flaw to cause a denial of service or potentially execute
    arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 2:2.7+git20190128+0c1e29f-6+deb10u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your wpa packages.
