Description Johann Bauer 2012-05-09 06:09:31 EDT

this (upstream) bug renders wicd unusable for certain encryption settings.

Sorry for not adhering to the usual reporting procedure, but this bug seems to have been reported to upstream and solved in version already, for the details please see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=669388 .

Kind regards,
Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2012-05-09 08:43:26 EDT

  can you confirm the Johann's patch proposal would correct this regression?
If so, original Fedora's CVE-2012-2095 wicd bug can be moved to NEW state again to submit the updates (to correct this regression).

Would you need anything else from us due this, let us know.

Thank you && Regards, Jan.

Comment 2 David Cantrell 2012-08-02 13:28:37 EDT
Sorry for the delay.  Yes, this is a valid problem.  I have an updated patch to fix CVE-2012-2095 for all use cases.  This needs to be fixed in the F-16 and F-17 packages.
Comment 3 David Cantrell 2012-08-02 13:37:04 EDT
I have built wicd-1.7.0-14.fc16 and wicd- to fix this problem in F-16 and F-17, respectively.  If someone wants to update the existing CVE-2012-2095 security update or issue a new one, feel free.  Otherwise I will wait for bug #811763 to go back to NEW and handle it there.
