Please assign a CVE to this issue. An intended change in PolicyKit  version 0.103  allows users of the "wheel" group to become root without providing the root password. While this was intentional, we believe it presents a security concern for our users .  http://cgit.freedesktop.org/PolicyKit/commit/?id=763faf434b445c20ae9529100d3ef5290976d0c9  http://www.mail-archive.com/polkit-devel@...ts.freedesktop.org/msg00327.html  https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=401513  http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/view/policykit-1/0.104-2/05_revert-admin-identities-unix-group-wheel.patch  https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/policykit-1/0.103-1 thank you tim -- Tim Sammut ~ Gentoo Security Team underling@...too.org ~ C2375493 Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (231 bytes)
