Details

Updated polkit packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.2 Extended Update Support.

The polkit packages provide a component for controlling system-wide privileges.
This component provides a uniform and organized way for non-privileged processes
to communicate with privileged ones.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the polkit daemon (polkitd) was not able to correctly free all
memory allocated during normal operation. Consequently, the memory allocated to
polkitd continued to grow. When the system ran out of memory, the kernel
terminated the process unexpectedly. This bug has been fixed and the polkitd now
can free the memory as expected. (BZ#1418935)

Users of polkit are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this
bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
