SuSE 11.1 Security Update : NetworkManager (SAT Patch Number 5381)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

NetworkManager did not pin a certificate's subject to an ESSID. A
rogue access point could therefore be used to conduct MITM attacks by
using any other valid certificate issued by same CA as used in the
original network (CVE-2006-7246). This has been fixed.

Please note that existing WPA2 Enterprise connections need to be
deleted and re-created to take advantage of the new security checks.
