Description

sysconfig hook script for NetworkManager did not properly quote shell meta characters when processing ESSIDs. Specially crafted network names could have therefore lead to execution of shell code. (CVE-2011-4182)

In addition, the following non-security bugs were fixed :

  • 580018: ip addr flush $ifname causes vanishing /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/$ifname

  • 697929: ipv6, rcnetwork returns before dad completed
