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

low Nessus Plugin ID 55529
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected NetworkManager package.
