SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that network-manager-applet, a network management framework, lacks some dbus restriction rules, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information.
If you have locally modified the /etc/dbus-1/system.d/nm-applet.conf file, then please make sure that you merge the changes from this fix when asked during upgrade.
SolutionUpgrade the network-manager and network-manager-applet packages accordingly.
For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 0.6.4-6+etch1 of network-manager.
For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 0.6.6-4+lenny1 of network-manager-applet.
