Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2017:2755-1
Rating: important
References: #1056061
Cross-References: CVE-2017-13078 CVE-2017-13079 CVE-2017-13080
CVE-2017-13081 CVE-2017-13087 CVE-2017-13088

Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.3
openSUSE Leap 42.2
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that fixes 6 vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

This update for wpa_supplicant fixes the security issues:

- Several vulnerabilities in standard conforming implementations of the
WPA2 protocol have been discovered and published under the code name
KRACK. This update remedies those issues in a backwards compatible
manner, i.e. the updated wpa_supplicant can interface properly with both
vulnerable and patched implementations of WPA2, but an attacker won't be
able to exploit the KRACK weaknesses in those connections anymore even
if the other party is still vulnerable. [bsc#1056061, CVE-2017-13078,
CVE-2017-13079, CVE-2017-13080, CVE-2017-13081, CVE-2017-13087,
CVE-2017-13088]
