CVE-ID  : CVE-2020-16121
Package : packagekit
Type    : information disclosure
Remote  : No
Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1260

Summary
=======

The package packagekit before version 1.2.3-1 is vulnerable to
information disclosure.

Resolution
==========

Upgrade to 1.2.3-1.

# pacman -Syu "packagekit>=1.2.3-1"

The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.2.3.

Workaround
==========

None.

Description
===========

The InstallFiles, GetFilesLocal and GetDetailsLocal methods of the DBus
interface to PackageKit <= 1.1.13 access files before checking for
authorization. This allows non-privileged users to learn the MIME type
of any file on the system.

Impact
======

A non-privileged local attacker could learn the MIME type of any file
on the system.
