=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=

=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
network-manager-gnome 0.7~~svn20081020t000444-0ubuntu1.8.10.3

Ubuntu 9.04:
network-manager-gnome 0.7.1~rc4.1-0ubuntu2.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your session to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that NetworkManager did not ensure that the Certification
Authority (CA) certificate file remained present when using WPA Enterprise
or 802.1x networks. A remote attacker could use this flaw to spoof the
identity of a wireless network and view sensitive information.
(CVE-2009-4144)

It was discovered that the connection editor GUI would incorrectly export
objects over D-Bus. A local user could read D-Bus signals to view other
users' network connection passwords and pre-shared keys. (CVE-2009-4145)
