    3. Description:
    
    Polkit-qt is a library that lets developers use the PolicyKit API through a
    Qt-styled API. The polkit-qt library is used by the KDE Authentication
    Agent (KAuth), which is a part of kdelibs.
    
    It was found that polkit-qt handled authorization requests with PolicyKit
    via a D-Bus API that is vulnerable to a race condition. A local user could
    use this flaw to bypass intended PolicyKit authorizations. This update
    modifies polkit-qt to communicate with PolicyKit via a different API that
    is not vulnerable to the race condition. (CVE-2014-5033)
    
    All polkit-qt users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
