Security Advisory Description

In PolicyKit (aka polkit) 0.115, the β€œstart time” protection mechanism can be bypassed because fork() is not atomic, and therefore authorization decisions are improperly cached. This is related to lack of uid checking in polkitbackend/polkitbackendinteractiveauthority.c. (CVE-2019-6133)
