Package        : gnome-boxes
Version        : 3.30.3-2+deb10u1
CVE ID         : 
Debian Bug     : 

It has been found that the update of freerdp2 (see DLA-3606-1) exposed a
bug in gnome-boxes, which breaks RDP connections with the symtoms of
hangs and black screens. 

Note: sha256 is now used instead of sha1 to fingerprint certificates. This will
invalidate all hosts in FreeRDP known_hosts2 file, $HOME/.config/freerdp/known_hosts2.
In case of problems with the connection, try removing that file.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version
3.30.3-2+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnome-boxes packages.
