Name        : wpa_supplicant
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 0.5.7
Release     : 3.fc7
Summary     : WPA/WPA2/IEEE 802.1X Supplicant
Description :
wpa_supplicant is a WPA Supplicant for Linux, BSD and Windows with support
for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i / RSN). Supplicant is the IEEE 802.1X/WPA
component that is used in the client stations. It implements key negotiation
with a WPA Authenticator and it controls the roaming and IEEE 802.11
authentication/association of the wlan driver.

Update Information:

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the debugging code of Fedora's version of wpa_supplicant.
This can be triggered by those using NetworkManager.

It is recommended that users of wpa_supplicant or NetworkManager update to this package
(and the accompanying NetworkManager packages) which removes the affected debug code.
