Fedora 16 : NetworkManager- (2011-13425)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 56370


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes security issue in ifcfg-rh plugin (CVE-2011-3364).
This update also fixes an applet and connection editor crash caused by mis-packaging of some UI-related files, and corrects the path of iscsiadm. This update further adds the ability to delete connections from nmcli, correctly handles IPv6 link-local DNS servers when using the dnsmasq local caching nameserver plugin, and fixes connection timestamps for VPN connections.

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.
