    Package        : ibus
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-14822
    Debian Bug     : 940267
    
    Simon McVittie reported a flaw in ibus, the Intelligent Input Bus. Due
    to a misconfiguration during the setup of the DBus, any unprivileged
    user could monitor and send method calls to the ibus bus of another
    user, if able to discover the UNIX socket used by another user connected
    on a graphical environment. The attacker can take advantage of this flaw
    to intercept keystrokes of the victim user or modify input related
    configurations through DBus method calls.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.5.14-3+deb9u2.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.19-4+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ibus packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of ibus please refer to its security
