Updated networkmanager packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 15 Jun 2020
Affected Mageia releases : 7
It was found that nmcli, a command line interface to NetworkManager did not honour 802-1x.ca-path and 802-1x.phase2-ca-path settings, when creating a new profile. When a user connects to a network using this profile, the authentication does not happen and the connection is made insecurely (CVE-2020-10754). The networkmanager package has been updated to version 1.18.8, fixing this issue and other bugs. Also, the networkmanager-applet package has been updated to version 1.8.24. It also adds support for connecting to WPA3 / SAE protected wireless networks. gnome-control-center and gnome-shell have been fixed to correctly identify the connections as WPA3.
