Description Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) 2013-09-10 14:52:32 UTC
embargo ends Sept 11th 2013
Comment 1 Sean Amoss (RETIRED) 2013-09-14 02:34:08 UTC
It's past the embargo date you specified and there is no information in this bug as to which package has a vulnerability, much less any information about the vulnerability. It defeats the purpose of having a restricted bug. Unrestricting the bug and will close it invalid in 48 hours if more information is not provided.

Embargo has been pushed back to Sept 18th by the vendor. I would provide some information on the bug that I can but now that its unrestricted I can't.

We are talked about this issue. Unless you provide some useful info, this bug will be marked as INVALID. Reporting restricted bugs about some vulnerability in some product is counter-productive. Either provide info in RESTRICTED bug, which contents we, as a security team will keep in private for a certain date, or do not file such bugs at our bugzilla at all.
Comment 4 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) 2013-09-16 01:36:56 UTC
Let's all relax. What I agreed to said I would not disclose any information to people not on the list which apparently no one from email@example.com is on. I needed clarification before I could fill details in, telling me that you won't disclose information is not good enough until I got clarification. By the time I did this bug was marked unrestricted so I couldn't add any information. This is the first time I'm getting back to it now that its toggled restricted again. This bug was primarily made not for firstname.lastname@example.org but for the maintainer of this package to coordinate with me on bug #484488 for stabilization. This bug is for polkit. We'll have this be to stabilize polkit-0.110-r1 but add polkit-0.112 for the ~arch users.
Comment 5 Sean Amoss (RETIRED) 2013-09-17 22:27:35 UTC
Are we waiting until the embargo ends to stable sys-auth/polkit-0.110-r1 ?
Comment 6 Chris Reffett (RETIRED) 2013-09-19 15:52:13 UTC
Embargo over, hit oss-security yesterday. Ready to stable?

(In reply to Chris Reffett from comment #6) > Embargo over, hit oss-security yesterday. Ready to stable? Yes. target version: 0.110-r1

CVE-2013-4288 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2013-4288): Race condition in PolicyKit (aka polkit) allows local users to bypass intended PolicyKit restrictions and gain privileges by starting a setuid or pkexec process before the authorization check is performed, related to (1) the polkit_unix_process_new API function, (2) the dbus API, or (3) the --process (unix-process) option for authorization to pkcheck.
