Created webkit2gtk3 tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 2104794]

Comment 3 Michael Catanzaro 2022-07-07 11:59:55 UTC
Note this only affects developer builds from git. WebRTC code is not included in any WebKitGTK releases thus far.

Comment 4 Michael Catanzaro 2022-07-25 12:58:20 UTC
Again, no released version of WebKitGTK is vulnerable, so I've removed the Fixed In Version. The security advisory is very misleading: it applies only to builds from git with experimental features enabled.
