 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:171
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : networkmanager
 Date    : November 11, 2011
 Affected: 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Security issues were identified and fixed in networkmanager:
 
 GNOME NetworkManager before 0.8.6 does not properly enforce the
 auth_admin element in PolicyKit, which allows local users to bypass
 intended wireless network sharing restrictions via unspecified vectors
 (CVE-2011-2176).
 
 Incomplete blacklist vulnerability in the svEscape function in
 settings/plugins/ifcfg-rh/shvar.c in the ifcfg-rh plug-in for GNOME
 NetworkManager 0.9.1, 0.9.0, 0.8.1, and possibly other versions, when
 PolicyKit is configured to allow users to create new connections,
 allows local users to execute arbitrary commands via a newline
 character in the name for a new network connection, which is not
 properly handled when writing to the ifcfg file (CVE-2011-3364).
 
 Instead of patching networkmanager, the latest 0.8.6.0 stable
 version is being provided due to the large amount of bugs fixed
 upstream. Also the networkmanager-applet, networkmanager-openconnect,
 networkmanager-openvpn, networkmanager-pptp, networkmanager-vpnc is
 being provided with their latest 0.8.6.0 stable versions.
 
 The provided packages solves these security vulnerabilities.
