Marvell Driver EAPoL-Key Length Overflow
------------------------------------------------------------------------


SUMMARY

The wireless drivers in some Wi-Fi access points (such as the
MARVELL-based Netgear WN802T) do not correctly parse malformed EAPoL-Key
packets. This packet is used for unicast/multicast key derivation (which
are called 4-way handshake and group key handshake) of any secure wireless
connection (WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, WPA-EAP, WPA2-EAP).

DETAILS

Vulnerable Systems:
* Netgear WN802T (firmware 1.3.16) with MARVELL 88W8361P-BEM1 chipset

The bug can be triggered by a malicious EAPoL-Key packet sent to the
wireless access point (this packet has an advertised length too long
triggering the overflow). This can be achieved only after a successful
802.11 authentication (in "Open" mode according to the configuration of
the wireless access point) and a successful 802.11 association with
appropriate security parameters (e.g. WPA w/ TKIP unicast, TKIP multicast)
which depends on the configuration of the wireless access point.

Attack Impact:
Denial-of-service (reboot or hang-up) and possibly remote arbitrary code
execution

Attack Vector:
Unauthenticated wireless device for WPA/WPA2-PSK and EAP-based
authenticated wireless device for WPA/WPA2-EAP

CVE Information:
<http://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1144>
CVE-2008-1144
