openSUSE Security Update : NetworkManager-gnome (openSUSE-SU-2012:0101-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 75977


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


NetworkManager did not pin a certificate's subject to an ESSID. A rogue access point could therefore be used to conduct MITM attacks by using any other valid certificate issued by same CA as used in the original network (CVE-2006-7246).

Please note that existing WPA2 Enterprise connections need to be deleted and re-created to take advantage of the new security checks.

This is a re-release of the previous update to also enable the checks for EAP-TLS.


Update the affected NetworkManager-gnome packages.
