Top posting:

CVE-2013-4216 WiMAX Log file created with insecure (world-writable)
permissions

CVE-2013-4217 WiMAX (OSAL crypt module): By setting encrypted password
writes unencrypted passwords to log files

CVE-2013-4218 WiMAX Supplicant agent ships RSA private key in the package

CVE-2013-4219 WiMAX Three integer overflows, leading to heap-based
buffer overflows when handling PDUs for L5 connections
