If you have read the article it is all about Network manager and the wi-fi storage of the passwords.

The network manager does not store supposedly encrypted password securely? :shock:

The problem seems to be ill-stated to me. 8) The description of the problem is not clearly stated and no solution is advanced.

Gnome has to fix it, it Red Hat Code originally, the only thing they provide is to encript the whole Desktop.

sorry but this is upstream issue and we are not much different.
please encrypt your save.dat (or use encrypted magic folders + save.dat).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

It is a security issue that why I brought it up, in case someone was interested that's all, not blaming anybody, Porteus uses Network Manager.
