Description of problem:
I'm not sure under which component this bug belongs, but I guess
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/* would fall under initscripts. Sorry if that is
not the case.
This bug effects both RH8.0 and phoebe.
When configuring a wireless network adapter using redhat-config-network it asks
for such values as the ESSID and secret WEP KEY
The problem is that the KEY gets written to the respective ifcfg-eth* file as a
key= value and this file is readable to every user on the system.
e.g. on my system eth1 is my wireless adapter, and the file
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 has the following permissions:
-rw-r--r-- 3 root root 298 Dec 23 22:25 ifcfg-eth1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.setup wireless networking with WEP enabled
