Description

Updated polkit packages fix security vulnerability :

A race condition was found in the way the PolicyKit pkcheck utility checked process authorization when the process was specified by its process ID via the --process option. A local user could use this flaw to bypass intended PolicyKit authorizations and escalate their privileges (CVE-2013-4288).

Note: Applications that invoke pkcheck with the --process option need to be modified to use the pid,pid-start-time,uid argument for that option, to allow pkcheck to check process authorization correctly.

Because of the change in the PolicyKit API, hplip (CVE-2013-4325), rtkit (CVE-2013-4326), and systemd (CVE-2013-4327) packages have been updated to use a different API that is not affected by this PolicyKit vulnerability.
