Name        : wicd
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 1.7.0
Release     : 12.fc15
URL         : http://wicd.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Wireless and wired network connection manager
Description :
Wicd is designed to give the user as much control over behavior of network
connections as possible.  Every network, both wired and wireless, has its
own profile with its own configuration options and connection behavior.
Wicd will try to automatically connect only to networks the user specifies
it should try, with a preference first to a wired network, then to wireless.

This package provides the architecture-dependent components of wicd.

Update Information:

This update fixes CVE-2012-2095.  The wicd daemon suffered from a local privilege escalation flaw due to incomplete input sanitization.  A local attacker sould use this to inject arbitrary code through the D-Bus interface.
