*** This bug is a security vulnerability ***

Public security bug reported:

Binary package hint: kpackagekit

Although I have set kpackagekit to check for updates daily and to only
notify about available updates some security updates are downloaded and
installed. This is a major security issue as it allows the automatic
installation of software without the permission of the administrator.

** Affects: kpackagekit (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: New
