Problem description

MadWifi prior to 0.9.3.3 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (panic) via a beacon frame with a large length value in
the extended supported rates (xrates) element, which would trigger
an assertion error.

Updated packages have been updated to 0.9.3.3 to correct this
issue. Wpa_supplicant is built using madwifi-source and has been
rebuilt using 0.9.3.3 source.
