Wifi security issue if Wifi is not configured?

I’m running version 169 on my Raspberry Pi 3b+. I saw the notice of the kernel wifi issue. Do I need to worry at all about this if I haven’t configured the wifi interface at all in IPFire? I’m using the built-in ethernet as well as a USB<->Ethernet port, but not the wifi port.

I don’t believe that you should be affected as those vulnerabilities have to be exploited over the air.
However if you update to CU171 you will get the kernel patches that fix those vulnerabilities.


Thanks. I’m hoping to install the update this weekend.
