My Devuan with runit based servers do not have DBUS, except for libdbus
which comes as a dependency for something. But no running DBUS daemon
whatsoever. So already two attack vectors removed: No Systemd, no DBUS.
Not even the one that uses Incus to run about 10 Alpine containers and one
Devuan container has a DBUS daemon running. Not on the host nor in any

The desktop boxes use DBUS as I prefer to use KDE's Plasma. And it does
have some value for inter process communication.
