Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66827
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0108
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0108.

NetworkManager is a network link manager that attempts to keep a wired or
wireless network connection active at all times.

A missing network certificate verification flaw was found in
NetworkManager. If a user created a WPA Enterprise or 802.1x wireless
network connection that was verified using a Certificate Authority (CA)
certificate, and then later removed that CA certificate file,
NetworkManager failed to verify the identity of the network on the
following connection attempts. In these situations, a malicious wireless
network spoofing the original network could trick a user into disclosing
authentication credentials or communicating over an untrusted network.
(CVE-2009-4144)

An information disclosure flaw was found in NetworkManager's
nm-connection-editor D-Bus interface. If a user edited network connection
options using nm-connection-editor, a summary of those changes was
broadcasted over the D-Bus message bus, possibly disclosing sensitive
information (such as wireless network authentication credentials) to other
local users. (CVE-2009-4145)

Users of NetworkManager should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
