Description Vincent Danen 2013-07-23 16:21:39 UTC
It was found that the patch to correct CVE-2012-5617 (bug #883162) was improperly applied, so the vulnerability described by CVE-2012-5617 was never really fixed.

As a result, gksu-polkit-0.0.3-6.fc18 was reported as fixing the issue, however it did not.  Similarly, the version in Fedora 19 is still vulnerable to this flaw.
