Looking for comment on CVE-2017-6975

Was wondering if any of the consumer wi-fi hubs provided by Virgin uses Broadcom Wi-Fi chips, and if so, whether a firmware update is now available or in the works. Appreciate any comments on this.

Looked at that CVE, seems to paply only to mobile devices using the broadcom SoC (System on chip)

Unlikely that any of the hubs would be affected as the hub isn't running any of the mobile chips or OS's

https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-6975 specifically calls out iOS devices
