    Matthias Gerstner discovered that PackageKit, a DBus abstraction layer
    for simple software management tasks, contains an authentication bypass
    flaw allowing users without privileges to install local packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1.5-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your packagekit packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of packagekit please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
