Under certain circumstances, a local, authenticated user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. Red Hat Bugzilla entry:  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=598775 Upstream changeset:  http://rpm.org/gitweb?p=rpm.git;a=commit;h=ca2d6b2b484f1501eafdde02e1688409340d2383 Could you allocate CVE id for this? Thanks && Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
