USN-662-1 fixed vulnerabilities in ndiswrapper in Ubuntu 8.10. This update provides the corresponding updates for Ubuntu 8.04 and 7.10.

Anders Kaseorg discovered that ndiswrapper did not correctly handle long ESSIDs. For a system using ndiswrapper, a physically near-by attacker could generate specially crafted wireless network traffic and execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2008-4395).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
