Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2019-03-13 09:05:29 UTC
From ${URL} :

gio/gsocketclient.c in GNOME GLib 2.59.2 does not ensure that a parent GTask remains alive during the execution of a connection-attempting 
enumeration, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (g_socket_client_connected_callback mishandling and application crash) 
via a crafted web site, as demonstrated by GNOME Web (aka Epiphany).

Upstream patch:

Upstream issue:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

Sorry, what bump? Is 2.56 or 2.58 even affected when it cites regressions from Happy Eyeballs work, which mostly happened in 2.59
Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2019-03-26 14:56:26 UTC
I'd be inclined to close this as INVALID.
Comment 3 Aaron Bauman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2019-03-26 18:05:00 UTC
Not in the tree and it is in development still.
