Severity: N/A

Last updated on: 2014-10-13

Details

Updated polkit-gnome packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The polkit-gnome packages provide an authentication agent for the polkit
authentication manager, which is an application-level toolkit for defining and
handling the policy that allows non-privileged processes communicate with
privileged ones.

* Due to a bug in the source code, the authentication dialog of the polkit GNOME
authentication manager could send an invalid time stamp to the window manager
when the dialog was displayed for the first time. Consequently, the dialog did
not receive focus for keyboard input, and the input was sent to the
previously-focused window instead. This bug has been fixed, and valid time
stamps are now obtained and sent to the window manager. As a result, keyboard
input is always sent to the displayed authentication dialog as expected.
(BZ#872918)

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