From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:0362 :
Updated NetworkManager packages that fix a security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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