Fedora 15 : NetworkManager-0.8.9997-5.git20110702.fc15 (2011-9005)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 55529
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected NetworkManager package.
