Synopsis: Important: rtkit security update
Advisory ID: SLSA-2013:1282-1
Issue Date: 2013-09-24
CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-4326
It was found that RealtimeKit communicated with PolicyKit for
authorization using a D-Bus API that is vulnerable to a race condition.
This could have led to intended PolicyKit authorizations being bypassed.
This update modifies RealtimeKit to communicate with PolicyKit via a
different API that is not vulnerable to the race condition.
