Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2019-10-01 23:43:48 UTC
CVE-2019-13377 (
  The implementations of SAE and EAP-pwd in hostapd and wpa_supplicant 2.x
  through 2.8 are vulnerable to side-channel attacks as a result of observable
  timing differences and cache access patterns when Brainpool curves are used.
  An attacker may be able to gain leaked information from a side-channel
  attack that can be used for full password recovery.

CVE-2019-16275 (
  hostapd before 2.10 and wpa_supplicant before 2.10 allow an incorrect
  indication of disconnection in certain situations because source address
  validation is mishandled. This is a denial of service that should have been
  prevented by PMF (aka management frame protection). The attacker must send a
  crafted 802.11 frame from a location that is within the 802.11
  communications range.

2.9 has been in the tree a while.  I added the patch and stabled wpa_supplicant-2.9-r1 on amd64 and x86.  Please proceed.
