Fixed In Version: polkit-0.112-7.el7_2.2
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
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.
