SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update for dbus-1 to version 1.8.22 fixes one security issue and bugs.

- Ensure that dbus-monitor does not reply to messages intended for others (fdo#90952)
- Add locking to DBusCounter's reference count and notify function (fdo#89297)
- Ensure that DBusTransport's reference count is protected by the corresponding DBusConnection's lock (fdo#90312)
- Correctly release DBusServer mutex before early-return if we run out of memory while copying authentication mechanisms (fdo#90021)
- Correctly initialize all fields of DBusTypeReader (fdo#90021)
- Fix some missing \n in verbose (debug log) messages (fdo#90004)
- Clean up some memory leaks in test code (fdo#90021)
