Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the firmware for
Broadcom BCM43xx wifi chips that may lead to a privilege escalation
or loss of confidentiality.

CVE-2016-0801

    Broadgate Team discovered flaws in packet processing in the
    Broadcom wifi firmware and proprietary drivers that could lead to
    remote code execution.  However, this vulnerability is not
    believed to affect the drivers used in Debian.

CVE-2017-0561

    Gal Beniamini of Project Zero discovered a flaw in the TDLS
    implementation in Broadcom wifi firmware.  This could be exploited
    by an attacker on the same WPA2 network to execute code on the
    wifi microcontroller.

CVE-2017-9417 / #869639

    Nitay Artenstein of Exodus Intelligence discovered a flaw in the
    WMM implementation in Broadcom wifi firmware.  This could be
    exploited by a nearby attacker to execute code on the wifi
    microcontroller.

CVE-2017-13077, CVE-2017-13078, CVE-2017-13079, CVE-2017-13080,
CVE-2017-13081

    Mathy Vanhoef of the imec-DistriNet research group of KU Leuven
    discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the WPA protocol used for
    authentication in wireless networks, dubbed "KRACK".

    An attacker exploiting the vulnerabilities could force the
    vulnerable system to reuse cryptographic session keys, enabling a
    range of cryptographic attacks against the ciphers used in WPA1
    and WPA2.

    These vulnerabilities are only being fixed for certain Broadcom
    wifi chips, and might still be present in firmware for other wifi
    hardware.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
20161130-4~deb8u1.  This version also adds new firmware and packages
for use with Linux 4.9, and re-adds firmware-{adi,ralink} as
transitional packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your firmware-nonfree packages.
