CVSS Base Vector:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'wpa'
Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the DSA-1922-1 advisory.
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.
hostapd (and wpa_supplicant when controlling AP mode) did not perform
sufficient source address validation for some received Management frames
and this could result in ending up sending a frame that caused
associated stations to incorrectly believe they were disconnected from
the network even if management frame protection (also known as PMF) was
negotiated for the association. This could be considered to be a denial
of service vulnerability since PMF is supposed to protect from this
type of issues.
'wpa' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Debian Linux.
