OK. Thank you. This seems to be the same package that comes with fedora 25.

This is a different package from what is shipped with Fedora 25!

The fixed package was pushed to the Fedora repositories only yesterday. The previous package (wpa_supplicant-2.6-3.fc25 from July 2017) is affected by the vulnerability!

See here for a list of all wpa_supplicant builds.

The fixed package is named: wpa_supplicant-2.6-3.fc25.1. Note the .1.
