Subject: CVE Request: NetworkManager creates an open network when asked to
 create an adhoc-WPA network

Hi All,

In NetworkManager, when a new wireless network was created with
WPA/WPA2 security, it created an open/insecure network.
>From the commit, it seems the bug exists in the kernel.


The patch disables WPA adhoc networks completely untill a better
solution is found.

Can a CVE id be please assigned to this issue?
