Forgot to fill out the title, oops. If that's correctable please update to something like: CVE-2021-4034 Local Privilege Escalation in polkit's pkexec

The security issues page ( https://security.archlinux.org/package/polkit ) doesn't mention CVE-2021-4034; and the fixed version is only in Testing, not stable.
