Name        : ModemManager
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.4
Release     : 5.git20100720.fc12
URL         : http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
Summary     : Mobile broadband modem management service
Description :
The ModemManager service provides a consistent API to operate many different
modems, including mobile broadband (3G) devices.

Update Information:

It was discovered that dbus-glib did not enforce the "access" flag on exported
GObject properties. If such a property were read/write internally but specified
as read-only externally, a malicious, local user could use this flaw to modify
that property of an application. Such a change could impact the application's
behavior (for example, if an IP address were changed the network may not come up
properly after reboot) and possibly lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1172)
Due to the way dbus-glib translates an application's XML definitions of service
interfaces and properties into C code at application build time, applications
built against dbus-glib that use read-only properties needed to be rebuilt to
fully fix the flaw. This update provides NetworkManager, ModemManager and
DeviceKit-power packages that have been rebuilt against the updated dbus-glib
