WPA2 KRACK Bug (security update)


Description of the problem:
https://w1.fi/security/2017-1/wpa-pa...d-messages.txt

Patched packages:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lin...pa-supplicant/

1)Download both the addons.
2)Place them in /etc/init.d
3)Reboot your machine.
Done!

These packages work for all supported 4MLinux versions (21.x, 22.x, 23.0).

Small comment:
This is a good example of installing 4MLinux packages by placing them in the /etc/initd.d directory and rebooting. Sysinit scripts installs them at an early boot stage (before any deamon or service is started). In this case, both the packages will be installed before dbus daemon and wpa supplicant are started, which may be important.
