Within the last 5 days we've had a critical Broadcom wireless chipset driver flaw and a D-Link wireless USB adapter flaw.  Now a Netgear Wi-Fi USB driver zero-day exploit is out and there is no patch for it.  The vulnerability exists in the WG111v2.SYS driver used in the WG111v2 Wi-Fi USB adapter.  A Metasploit 3.0 module was released for this exploit as a proof-of-concept.  Until an updated driver exists, try to avoid using the Netgear WG111v2 or disable it as often as possible.
