Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in PolicyKit, the worst of
which may allow a local attacker to gain root privileges.

Background
==========

PolicyKit is a toolkit for controlling privileges for system-wide
services.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 sys-auth/polkit < 0.104-r1 >= 0.104-r1

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in PolicyKit:

* Error messages in the pkexec utility disclose the existence of local
files (CVE-2010-0750).
* The pkexec utility initially checks the effective user ID of its
parent process for authorization, instead of checking the real user
ID (CVE-2011-1485).
* Members of the "wheel" group are able to execute commands as an
administrator without a password (CVE-2011-4945).

Impact
======

A local attacker could gain elevated privileges or sensitive
information.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All PolicyKit users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-auth/polkit-0.104-r1"
