WPA and WPA2 are methods for securing wireless networks, the former
using IEEE 802.1X, and the latter using IEEE 802.11i. This software
provides key negotiation with the WPA Authenticator, and controls
association with IEEE 802.11i networks.

wpa (1.0-3+deb7u3) wheezy-security; urgency=high
* Non-maintainer upload by the Security Team.
* Add patch to address CVE-2015-4141.
CVE-2015-4141: WPS UPnP vulnerability with HTTP chunked transfer
encoding. (Closes: #787372)
* Add patch to address CVE-2015-4142.
CVE-2015-4142: Integer underflow in AP mode WMM Action frame processing.
(Closes: #787373)
* Add patches to address CVE-2015-4143.
CVE-2015-4143: EAP-pwd missing payload length validation. (Closes: #787371)
* Add patch to address 2015-5 vulnerability.
NFC: Fix payload length validation in NDEF record parser.
Note that this issue does not affect the binary packages distributed in
Debian in Wheezy as CONFIG_WPS_NFC=y is not set in the build
configuration. (Closes: #795740)
2015-04-23 - Stefan Lippers-Hollmann <s.l-h@gmx.de>
wpa (1.0-3+deb7u2) wheezy-security; urgency=high
* import "P2P: Validate SSID element length before copying it
(CVE-2015-1863)" from upstream (Closes: #783148); this is essentially a
no-op for the wheezy binaries distributed by Debian, as CONFIG_P2P is
disabled there.
2014-10-15 - Stefan Lippers-Hollmann <s.l-h@gmx.de>
wpa (1.0-3+deb7u1) wheezy-security; urgency=high
* Apply upstream patches for CVE-2014-3686 (Closes: #765352):
- add os_exec() helper to run external programs
- wpa_cli: Use os_exec() for action script execution
- hostapd_cli: Use os_exec() for action script execution
2012-10-08 - Stefan Lippers-Hollmann <s.l-h@gmx.de>
wpa (1.0-3) unstable; urgency=high
* ship forgotten README-P2P.
* revert to GNU readline for wpa_cli, instead of using the internal readline
implementation added in wpa 1~. Prefer libreadline-gplv2-dev, because libnl
is GPL-2 (only) - switching back to the internal readline implementation is
targeted for wheezy+1 (Closes: #677993, #678077).
* Fix DoS via specially crafted EAP-TLS messages with longer message
length than TLS data length (CVE-2012-4445, DSA 2557-1, Closes: #689990).
2012-05-14 - Kel Modderman <kel@otaku42.de>
wpa (1.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Really enable hardened build flags, thanks Simon Ruderich
<simon@ruderich.org>. (Closes: #657332)
* Do not suppress compilation output, set V=1.
2012-05-11 - Kel Modderman <kel@otaku42.de>
wpa (1.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Stefan Lippers-Hollmann ]
* New upstream release, no code changes since 1.0~rc3.
* upload to unstable, to fix FTBS with gcc-4.7.
* update debian/README.source.
[ Kel Modderman ]
* No longer explicitly add --as-needed to LDFLAGS, it is no longer
required since wpa_cli stopped linking to libreadline (WPA_CLI_EDIT=y).
