Vulnerability CVE-2008-1197


Published: 2008-09-05   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
The Marvell driver for the Netgear WN802T Wi-Fi access point with firmware 1.3.16 on the Marvell 88W8361P-BEM1 chipset does not properly parse the SSID information element in an association request, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (device reboot or hang) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a "Null SSID."
