CVE-2019-17133

Priority
Description
In the Linux kernel through 5.3.2, cfg80211_mgd_wext_giwessid in
net/wireless/wext-sme.c does not reject a long SSID IE, leading to a Buffer
Overflow.
Ubuntu-Description
Nicolas Waisman discovered that the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate SSID lengths. A physically proximate attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
Notes
sbeattie4ac2813cc867ae563a1ba5a9414bfb554e5796fa would be a good
secondary line of defense
