     40Hi all. 
     41 
     42MadWifi v0.9.3.3 is available for [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=82936&package_id=85233&release_id=547876 download] now. 
     43 
     44This release fixes a security issue ([http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2007-5448 CVE-2007-5448]) and compilation for 
     45the recently released kernel 2.6.23. 
     46 
     47The security issue allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service 
     48(panic) via a beacon frame with a large length value in the extended 
     49supported rates element, which triggers an assertion error. 
     50 
     51We advise users to upgrade as soon as possible to avoid being vulnerable 
     52to this issue. 
     53 
     54Please note that this release does not add new major features, it's 
     55basically a security and maintenance release. 
     56 
     57We hope you enjoy the new version. As always, your feedback is highly 
     58welcome.
