Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-02-09 01:51:38 UTC
Denial of service fixes:

• Fix an incorrect assertion that could be used to crash dbus-daemon or
  other users of DBusServer prior to authentication, if libdbus was compiled
  with assertions enabled.
  We recommend that production builds of dbus, for example in OS distributions,
  should be compiled with checks but without assertions.
