polkit 0.113
--------------

NOTE: This release is an important security update, see below.

WARNING WARNING WARNING: This is a prerelease on the road to polkit
1.0. Public API might change and certain parts of the code still needs
some security review. Use at your own risk.

This is polkit 0.113.

Highlights:
 Fixes CVE-2015-4625, a local privilege escalation due to predictable
 authentication session cookie values. Thanks to Tavis Ormandy, Google Project
 Zero for reporting this issue. For the future, authentication agents are
 encouraged to use PolkitAgentSession instead of using the D-Bus agent response
 API directly.

 Fixes CVE-2015-3256, various memory corruption vulnerabilities in use of the
 JavaScript interpreter, possibly leading to local privilege escalation.

 Fixes CVE-2015-3255, a memory corruption vulnerability in handling duplicate
 action IDs, possibly leading to local privilege escalation. Thanks to
 Laurent Bigonville for reporting this issue.

 Fixes CVE-2015-3218, which allowed any local user to crash polkitd. Thanks to
 Tavis Ormandy, Google Project Zero, for reporting this issue.

 On systemd-213 and later, the “active” state is shared across all sessions of
 an user, instead of being tracked separately.

 (pkexec), when not given a program to execute, runs the users’ shell by
 default.

 glib, gobject, gio    >= 2.30

 gobject-introspection >= 0.6.2 (optional)

--------------

NOTE: This release is an important security update, see below.

WARNING WARNING WARNING: This is a prerelease on the road to polkit
1.0. Public API might change and certain parts of the code still needs
some security review. Use at your own risk.

This is polkit 0.112.

Highlights:
 This release fixes CVE-2013-4288: Race condition with process subjects that do
 not have securely determined uid.

 pkcheck(1) now supports a new format for the --process argument; all
 applications need to use the new format to avoid a race condition (or use
 --system-bus-name to identify the process instead).

 Similarly, applications using the API should always use
 polkit_unix_process_new_for_owner().  polkit_unix_process_new() and
 polkit_unix_process_new_full() are unsafe and have been deprecated.

 Thanks to Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE Security Team for reporting this issue.
