* Fri Jul  1 2011 Richard Hughes  <rhughes at redhat.com> - 0.6.15-2
- Upstream yum recently changed the behaviour when checking signatures
  on a package. The commit added a new configuration key which only
  affects local packages, but the key was set by default to False.
- This meant that an end user could install a local unsigned rpm package
  using PackageKit without a GPG trust check, and the user would be told
  the untrusted package is itself trusted.
- To exploit this low-impact vulnerability, a user would have to
  manually download an unsigned package file and would still be required
  to authenticate to install the package.
- The CVE-ID for this bug is CVE-2011-2515
- See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=717566 for details.
- Resolves #718127
* Tue Jun  7 2011 Richard Hughes  <rhughes at redhat.com> - 0.6.15-1

- Do not prevent updating when firefox is running, we don't have all the
  client UI ready yet.
