Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
nm-applet.conf in GNOME NetworkManager before 0.7.0.99 contains an incorrect deny setting, which allows local users to discover (1) network connection passwords and (2) pre-shared keys via calls to the GetSecrets method in the dbus request handler.
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
