Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in packagekit, a package
management service.

    certain methods. A local attacker could use this issue to learn the
    MIME type of any file on the system.


    Sami Niemimäki discovered that PackageKit incorrectly handled local
    deb packages. A local user could possibly use this issue to install
