Description Vincent Danen 2012-04-11 22:41:38 UTC
It was reported [1],[2] that wicd suffered from a local privilege escalation flaw due to incomplete input sanitization.  A local attacker could use this to inject arbitrary code through the DBus interface.

This has been corrected upstream [3] in the 1.7.2 release [4].
