Vulnerability Insight:
This update for rpm fixes the following issues:

These security issues were fixed:

- CVE-2017-7500: rpm did not properly handle RPM installations when a
destination path was a symbolic link to a directory, possibly changing
ownership and permissions of an arbitrary directory, and RPM files being
placed in an arbitrary destination (bsc#943457).

- CVE-2017-7501: rpm used temporary files with predictable names when
installing an RPM. An attacker with ability to write in a directory
where files will be installed could create symbolic links to an
arbitrary location and modify content, and possibly permissions to
arbitrary files, which could be used for denial of service or possibly
privilege escalation (bsc#943457)

- Use ksym-provides tool [bsc#1077692]
