When you a local user looks at the WIFI information the password for WIFI can be viewed or changed without a administrator password being entered. NetworkManager app 1.3 allows anyone that has local access to the computer to view, change the WIFI password with out a administrator password prompt appearing.

Does this occur for all Linux distro's ? It appears to exists on all Debian based distro's.

This was pretty well discussed already a few months ago... here.

That thread was locked, and @KGIII or @wizardfromoz may consider this a duplicate. I don't see that you've added anything new that should be considered?

Great catch!

I'll lock this one as duplicates aren't allowed and they don't appear to have the information requested by one of our admins. Said admin locked that thread, so I'll do the same here.
