Does anyone know if the wext kernel driver for the rt2400 is subject to the security problem noted in http//www.heise-online.co.uk/news/Linu ... r--/112520
I'm using it with a Minitar PCMCIA card under Fedora 10 successfully, but am concerned about possible vulnerabilities.
The security risk is only for the legacy drivers and not the in-kernel drivers. So as long as you use the drivers that came with Fedora you are safe from the exploit.
Thanks Ivo, I am pleased to hear that.
