A local attacker may be able to gain elevated privileges. Furthermore, a
remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted RPM
package, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
