Intel 2200BG 802.11 Beacon frame Kernel Memory Corruption Exploit

The intel wireless mini-pci driver provided with Intel 2200BG 
cards is vulnerable to a remote race condition memory corruption flaw. 
Malformed beacons frame can be used to corrupt internal kernel 
structures,leading to arbitrary code execution. This vulnerability is 
triggered when flooding wifi card with many malformed beacons frame. The 
data is copied over internal kernel structures, resulting in memory 
operations being performed on attacker-controlled pointer values, like 
EIP values.

Vulnerable Systems:
 * Intel 2200 driver version
