Description

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.
