Description

nm-connection-editor in NetworkManager (NM) 0.7.x exports connection objects over D-Bus upon actions in the connection editor GUI, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading D-Bus signals, as demonstrated by using dbus-monitor to discover the password for the WiFi network.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
