  Their description is incorrect.  It's not the MS-CHAPv2 protool,
it's EAP-MS-CHAPv2, which is substantially different.  I also don't
think it's pissible to execute arbitrary code, but the CVE listing
they reference says that.

  This highlights the problem with having multiple grouips reporting
on the same error.  Few of them talk to the developers, so they end up
playing a game of "telephone" among themselves, and get a lot of
things wrong.
