Debian dsa-5682 : libglib2.0-0 - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 195147


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


The remote Debian 11 / 12 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the dsa-5682 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in GNOME GLib before 2.78.5, and 2.79.x and 2.80.x before 2.80.1. When a GDBus- based client subscribes to signals from a trusted system service such as NetworkManager on a shared computer, other users of the same computer can send spoofed D-Bus signals that the GDBus-based client will wrongly interpret as having been sent by the trusted system service. This could lead to the GDBus-based client behaving incorrectly, with an application-dependent impact. (CVE-2024-34397)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the libglib2.0-0 packages.
