Package : policykit-1 Version : 0.105-15~deb8u4 CVE ID : CVE-2018-19788 CVE-2019-6133
Two vulnerabilities were found in Policykit, a framework for managing administrative policies and privileges:
It was discovered that incorrect processing of very high UIDs in Policykit could result in authentication bypass.
Jann Horn of Google found that Policykit doesn't properly check if a process is already authenticated, which can lead to an authentication reuse by a different user.
For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version 0.105-15~deb8u4.
We recommend that you upgrade your policykit-1 packages.
