Critical Broadcom Windows driver exploit released!

According to Johnny Cache, this particular exploit is extremely reliable and results in "100% ownage" which means your computer belongs to the hacker if it's attacked using this exploit. Since the exploit has been rolled in to the Metasploit 3.0 framework which includes kernel-level shell code, the exploit can be performed with a moderate amount of hacking knowledge. This flaw is extremely dangerous because it exploits the kernel of the operating system which means it bypasses all conventional security measures like anti-virus, HIDS, firewalls, and user privileges. The attack range is limited to Wi-Fi range which is typically 100 to 200 feet but can be extended with high-powered antennas.
