[slackware-security] wicd (SSA:2009-040-01)

New wicd packages are available for Slackware 12.2 and -current to fix a
security issue with the D-Bus configuration file that could allow local
information disclosure (such as network credentials).

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0489


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/wicd/wicd-1.5.9-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to wicd-1.5.9.
This fixes a security problem with the D-Bus configuration file that allows
local users to intercept D-Bus messages, possibly including wireless network
credentials.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0489
(* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.

Updated package for Slackware 12.2:
wicd-1.5.9-noarch-1_slack12.2.tgz

Updated package for Slackware -current:
