   An update that contains security fixes can now be installed.


   This NetworkManager-kde4 update fixes the following security and non
   security issues:

   - Fixed a long standing security issue. This makes knetworkmanager probe
     the RADIUS server for a CA certificate subject and hash if no CA
     certificate is specified. knetworkmanager then stores this data and send
     it to NetworkManager for it to do a network validation in the absence of
     a real certificate (bsc#726349)

   - Disabled the loading by default of the NetworkManager plasma applet
     since it doesn't work.
   - Fixed a crash due to the use of an uninitialized variable in the plasma
     applet in case someone runs it manually (bsc#663413)
