Time to patch your WLAN driver!

You may or may not care, but Intel have just released a patch for their wireless adapter used on their Centrino platform.
 
Here’s Intel’s summary:
"Security vulnerabilities exist in the Microsoft* Windows* drivers for the Intel® 2200BG and 2915ABG PRO/Wireless Network Connection Hardware because of the way that they currently handle certain frames. An attacker could potentially exploit these vulnerabilities which could potentially lead to remote code execution and system control."
 
So if you are using one of the following WLAN adapter, get patching!
• Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
• Intel® PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection
