Version        : 1.1.5-2+deb9u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-16121 CVE-2020-16122

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in packagekit, a package
management service.

CVE-2020-16121

    Vaisha Bernard discovered that PackageKit incorrectly handled
    certain methods. A local attacker could use this issue to learn the
    MIME type of any file on the system.

CVE-2020-16122

    Sami Niemim=E4ki discovered that PackageKit incorrectly handled local
    deb packages. A local user could possibly use this issue to install
    untrusted packages, contrary to expectations.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
1.1.5-2+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your packagekit packages.
