Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured.
A buffer overflow vulnerability has been discovered in Aircrack-ng.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted dump file using Aircrack-ng, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Aircrack-ng users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-wireless/aircrack-ng-1.1-r2"
