The "Month of Kernel Bug" project released an advisory with details about a bug in Broadcoms Windows driver for its Wireless card. The high/low points:
Go ahead and patch your driver with whatever version they offer. If you get a chance, test the exploit and see if it works against some of the later versions. Of course, take care when doing so. The "known to be fixed" version from Linksys is 188.8.131.52.
Whenever you don't use your wireless network, turn off the wireless card. In particular if you are in a public space (airport, hotel).
