D-Bus 1.11.6 (UNRELEASED)
D-Bus 1.11.6 (2016-10-10)
The darkly whimsical release.
Security fixes:
Do not treat ActivationFailure message received from root-owned systemd
name as a format string. In principle this is a security vulnerability,
but we do not believe it is exploitable in practice, because only
privileged processes can own the org.freedesktop.systemd1 bus name, and
systemd does not appear to send activation failures that contain "%".
Please note that this probably *was* exploitable in dbus versions
older than 1.6.30, 1.8.16 and 1.9.10 due to a missing check which at
the time was only thought to be a denial of service vulnerability
(CVE-2015-0245). If you are still running one of those versions,
patch or upgrade immediately.

On Linux, mention the LSM label (if available) whenever we print

Other fixes:
Harden dbus-daemon against malicious or incorrect ActivationFailure
messages by rejecting them if they do not come from a privileged
process, or if systemd activation is not enabled
