FreeBSD is also affected and should release a fix shortly. Due to a signedness error in the IEEE80211_IOC_CHANINFO ioctl, a local unprivileged user could cause the kernel to copy large amounts of kernel memory back to the user, disclosing potentially sensitive information. The issue only affects certain non-x86 architectures, such as SPARC. -Dan  http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/sys/net80211/ieee80211_ioctl.c?rev=1.56&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup&only_with_tag=MAIN
