Package        : bluez
CVE ID         : CVE-2023-45866
Debian Bug     : 1057914

It was reported that the BlueZ's HID profile implementation is not
inline with the HID specification which mandates the use of Security
Mode 4.  The HID profile configuration option ClassicBondedOnly now
defaults to "true" to make sure that input connections only come from
bonded device connections.

For the oldstable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed
in version 5.55-3.1+deb11u1.

For the stable distribution (bookworm), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.66-1+deb12u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your bluez packages.

tracker page at:
