dbus-glib 0.88 is now available:

First note, and most importantly, this fixes a security issue:
Note that affected system services will need to be rebuilt (but not
necessarily patched).  One other thing; I made a "rhel5" branch
upstream which has a backport to that version (along with other misc
backported patches) which other people may find useful.

Second note: this release increases the GLib dependency to 2.24 (for
dbus_gvalue_to_variant).  If you just want the security fix, the patch
in the above bug applies to 0.86 too.
