The work @elementary contributors are doing on their GTK stylesheet, and supporting a system-wide dark mode, is really great. I especially like these accent colours! I’m looking forward to trying it again.

We are not aware of any active exploits of this vulnerability; however, to be extra vigilant, users should check the list of trusted/paired devices and remove any that are not 100% confirmed to be genuine.

If the settings remained open, the request would be accepted without user intervention. The fix in version 2.3.5 includes showing a dialog to the user to explicitly allow or deny the request, including verifying a numeric PIN if it is present.

The issue was discovered, disclosed, and fixed by @davidmhewitt@twitter.com—huge thanks to him and his work. If you’d like to sponsor him and his continued work on open source, you can do so via GitHub Sponsors: github.com/sponsors/davidmhewi
