Description

NetworkManager (NM) 0.7.2 does not ensure that the configured Certification Authority (CA) certificate file for a (1) WPA Enterprise or (2) 802.1x network remains present upon a connection attempt, which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (connectivity disruption) by spoofing the identity of a wireless 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.
