+Subject: [PATCH 1/3] Reject psk parameter set with invalid passphrase
+ character
+
+WPA/WPA2-Personal passphrase is not allowed to include control
+characters. Reject a passphrase configuration attempt if that passphrase
+includes an invalid passphrase.
+
+This fixes an issue where wpa_supplicant could have updated the
+configuration file psk parameter with arbitrary data from the control
+interface or D-Bus interface. While those interfaces are supposed to be
+accessible only for trusted users/applications, it may be possible that
+an untrusted user has access to a management software component that
+does not validate the passphrase value before passing it to
+wpa_supplicant.
+
+This could allow such an untrusted user to inject up to 63 characters of
+almost arbitrary data into the configuration file. Such configuration
+file could result in wpa_supplicant trying to load a library (e.g.,
+opensc_engine_path, pkcs11_engine_path, pkcs11_module_path,
+load_dynamic_eap) from user controlled location when starting again.
+This would allow code from that library to be executed under the
+wpa_supplicant process privileges.
