SuSE 11 Security Update : NetworkManager (SAT Patch Number 734)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 41359


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


The NetworkManager configuration was too permissive and allowed any user to read secrets (CVE-2009-0365) or manipulate the configuration of other users. (CVE-2009-0578)

Additionally a bug where wifi devices didn't work correctly when the machine was booted with killswitch turned on has been fixed. The automatic ethernet connection can now be edited and NetworkManager can now work without ModemManager.


Apply SAT patch number 734.
