Fedora 16 : wicd-1.7.0-13.fc16 (2012-5909)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58859
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes CVE-2012-2095. The wicd daemon suffered from a local privilege escalation flaw due to incomplete input sanitization. A local attacker sould use this to inject arbitrary code through the D-Bus interface.
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 wicd package.
