Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory - polkit (MDVSA-2013:243)

 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:243
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : polkit
 Date    : September 27, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem 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.
