  script_tag(name:"insight", value:"dbus-glib is an add-on library to integrate the standard D-Bus library with
  the GLib main loop and threading model. NetworkManager is a network link
  manager that attempts to keep a wired or wireless network connection active
  at all times.

  It was discovered that dbus-glib did not enforce the 'access' flag on
  exported GObject properties. If such a property were read/write internally
  but specified as read-only externally, a malicious, local user could use
  this flaw to modify that property of an application. Such a change could
  impact the application's behavior (for example, if an IP address were
  changed the network may not come up properly after reboot) and possibly
  lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1172)

  Due to the way dbus-glib translates an application's XML definitions of
  service interfaces and properties into C code at application build time,
  applications built against dbus-glib that use read-only properties needed
  to be rebuilt to fully fix the flaw. As such, this update provides
  NetworkManager packages that have been rebuilt against the updated
  dbus-glib packages. No other applications shipped with Red Hat Enterprise
  Linux 5 were affected.

  All dbus-glib and NetworkManager users are advised to upgrade to these
  updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
  Running instances of NetworkManager must be restarted (service
  NetworkManager restart) for this update to take effect.");
