Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66744
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-883-1 (network-manager-applet)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-883-1 (network-manager-applet)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to network-manager-applet
announced via advisory USN-883-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that NetworkManager did not ensure that the Certification
Authority (CA) certificate file remained present when using WPA Enterprise
or 802.1x networks. A remote attacker could use this flaw to spoof the
identity of a wireless network and view sensitive information.
(CVE-2009-4144)

It was discovered that the connection editor GUI would incorrectly export
objects over D-Bus. A local user could read D-Bus signals to view other
users' network connection passwords and pre-shared keys. (CVE-2009-4145)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
network-manager-gnome 0.7~
~
svn20081020t000444-0ubuntu1.8.10.3

Ubuntu 9.04:

rc4.1-0ubuntu2.1

the necessary changes.
