Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:0362 :

Updated NetworkManager packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

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

An information disclosure flaw was found in NetworkManager's D-Bus interface. A local attacker could leverage this flaw to discover sensitive information, such as network connection passwords and pre-shared keys. (CVE-2009-0365)

Red Hat would like to thank Ludwig Nussel for responsibly reporting this flaw.

NetworkManager users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch that corrects this issue.
