Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s implementation of wireless drivers for the Intel PROset wireless hardware. This flaw allows an unauthorized attacker within the wireless radio range to cause the driver and the system to disconnect from the wireless network, triggering the operating system to lose network connectivity while the system is not connected. The highest threat from this vulnerability is system availability.
