openSUSE-SU-2012:0101-1: moderate: NetworkManager-gnome
openSUSE Security Update: NetworkManager-gnome
______________________________________________________________________________

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2012:0101-1
Rating: moderate
References: #574266 #732700
Affected Products:
openSUSE 11.4
openSUSE 11.3
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that contains security fixes can now be installed.

Description:

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.
