Description

GNOME NetworkManager before 0.7.0.99 does not properly verify privileges for dbus (1) modify and (2) delete requests, which allows local users to change or remove the network connections of arbitrary users via unspecified vectors related to org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings and at_console.

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.
