Applikationen: wicd


Name        : wicd
Product : Fedora 16
Version : 1.7.0
Release : 10.fc16
URL : http://wicd.sourceforge.net/
Summary : Wireless and wired network connection manager
Description :
Wicd is designed to give the user as much control over behavior of network
connections as possible. Every network, both wired and wireless, has its
own profile with its own configuration options and connection behavior.
Wicd will try to automatically connect only to networks the user specifies
it should try, with a preference first to a wired network, then to wireless.

This package provides the architecture-dependent components of wicd.

Update Information:


A sensitive information disclosure flaw was found in the way wicd, wireless and
wired network connection manager, performed management of sensitive information, to be stored in log files. Fields like 'password', 'identity', 'private_key', 'private_key_passwd' etc., were not excluded from being logged into /var/log/wicd log file, which could allow local attacker, with the privileges of the 'adm' group to view content of these entities in plain text, leading to information disclosure. This update fixes the problem.

A reboot is not technically necessary, but if you do not reboot your system
after installing this update, you should at least restart the wicd service.
