The Marvell driver for the Netgear WN802T Wi-Fi access point with firmware 1.3.16 on the Marvell 88W8361P-BEM1 chipset does not properly parse the SSID information element in an association request, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (device reboot or hang) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a "Null SSID."
CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
Impact Subscore: 6.9
Exploitability Subscore: 6.8
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Medium
Authentication: Required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows disruption of service
