Hello Ganapathi!

According to publicly available information, firmware for these W8xxx
Marvell wifi chips is vulnerable to security issue CVE-2019-6496 [1].

Are you able to update firmwares to the last versions and give us some
information which (old) firmware versions are affected by that security
issue?

So Linux distribution would know if they are distributing older
vulnerable firmwares and should push security fixes with new firmware
versions.
