LXer: WiFi bug found in Linux

Published at LXer:

A bug has been found in the MadWiFi Linux kernel device driver for Atheros-based WiFi chipsets that can allow an attacker to take control of a laptop - even when it is not on a WiFi network. The MadWiFi development team have released a patch. However, not all Linux distributions have yet built the patch into their code.
