  Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release

  location, verify its integrity [9], build a corresponding binary
  RPM from it [3] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying

  following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for
  other releases adjust accordingly).
