Package        : packagekit
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1106
Debian Bug     : 896703

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.
