Dell Requests Customers Apply Urgent Fix for Dell Wireless Wi-Fi Cards to Address Security Vulnerability.
In normal operation wireless cards receive data packets identifying the presence of new wireless networks. Broadcom-based wireless cards, including select Dell Wireless cards offered on Latitude, Mobile Precision, Inspiron and XPS notebooks, are subject to a security vulnerability whereby a hacker may manipulate the data packets received by the notebook in such a way as to trigger an error condition. This error condition could result in the hacker having system level privileges to the notebook. In some cases this could allow the hacker to run any programs or access any files they wish on the targeted notebook.
