- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-10064.
- More information:
Similar to CVE-2016-10743 the host access point daemon, hostapd, in EAP mode used a low quality pseudorandom number generator that leads to insufficient entropy. The problem was resolved by using the os_get_random function which provides cryptographically strong pseudo random data.
For Debian 8
Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 2.3-1+deb8u10.
We recommend that you upgrade your wpa packages.
