A more detailed description has been posted at https://securitylab.github.com/advisories/GHSL-2021-077-polkit/ > References: > https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2021-4115 > https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2054127 > https://pkgs.devel.redhat.com/cgit/rpms/polkit/commit/?h=rhel-8.6.0&id=a71b0b5bb6624858a16bfbc1e721757b243709c6 That last hostname does not resolve (perhaps it's internal to Red Hat?). I'm surprised these are all Red Hat URL's - was this not reported & fixed upstream? I see a query asking about that at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/polkit/polkit/-/issues/170 but no response, and no commit or merge request yet there. -- -Alan Coopersmith- alan.coopersmith@...cle.com Oracle Solaris Engineering - https://blogs.oracle.com/solaris
