Intel Centrino Wireless Driver Buffer Overlow - from @RISK digest

Some readers pointed out that the last @RISK digest made mention of a Intel Centrino Wireless Driver bug.  To clarify (and this clarification is in the archive now, and will go out with the next digest), this is an old bug (Jan. 2007) with a fix already out.  However, there is finally exploit code out there that is available for Metasploit which means the script kiddies will be out in force at a Starbucks near you.  Bottom line: old bug, patch available, new exploit code.  You have patched this already, haven't you?
