Fedora 15 : NetworkManager-0.8.9997-5.git20110702.fc15 (2011-9005)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update ensures that users are authorized to start shared wifi
connections, and includes fixes to retry failed connections after a
period of time. It also ensures that 'always ask' 802.1x passwords
(like RSA Token codes) are asked for again immediately if they fail,
and adds the capability to blacklist certain devices from using a
wired or wifi connection.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
