From the above post...

The vulnerability (CVE-2008-4395) affects Linux Kernel 2.6.27. As a
temporary mitigation, Linux users should disable wireless network card
that are not in use.

NdisWrapper users beware. It appears to have already been patched but not
propogated across repositories yet.

I'm always kind, polite and reasonable...

except when I'm not.
