Description Florian Weimer 2013-07-12 05:02:33 EDT
src/redhat_support_tool/helpers/yumdownloadhelper.py does not verify repository or package integrity.  As a result, there is a potential shell command injection in the package name (see bug 983909), but as we have transport layer protection for the default repositories, this does not seem particularly significant.

Perhaps the -debuginfo package can be installed using debuginfo-install instead (but see bug 676193).
