Microsoft Windows drivers for Intel Centrino wireless adapters fail to properly handle malformed frames. This vulnerability may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code.
The Microsoft Windows drivers for Intel Centrino 2200BG and 2915ABG PRO wireless adapters fail to properly handle malformed frames. If a remote attacker within transmitting range of an affected wireless adapter sends a specially crafted frame to that adapter, they may be able to trigger this vulnerability.
Affected drivers include w22n50.sys, w22n51.sys, w29n50.sys, and w29n51.sys. For more information refer to INTEL-SA-00001.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel-level privileges.
Upgrade Intel drivers
