Could a CVE please be assigned to this issue?

Actually, that fix only changes the permissions on database files that
were migrated from previous versions, it doesn't fix permissions on
newly created database files.

It would appear python-keyring still creates new database files with
inappropriate permissions.

New bug report seems to be at [1], I assume. Has there already been a CVE
assigned actually?

(with patches attached too)
