An update that solves two vulnerabilities and has 16 fixes
is now available.

Description:

This update for systemd fixes the following issues:

Security issues fixed:

– CVE-2018-15688: A buffer overflow vulnerability in the dhcp6 client of
systemd allowed a malicious dhcp6 server to overwrite heap memory in
systemd-networkd. (bsc#1113632)
– CVE-2018-15686: A vulnerability in unit_deserialize of systemd allows an
attacker to supply arbitrary state across systemd re-execution via
NotifyAccess. This can be used to improperly influence systemd execution
and possibly lead to root privilege escalation. (bsc#1113665)

Non security issues fixed:

– dhcp6: split assert_return() to be more debuggable when hit
– core: skip unit deserialization and move to the next one when
unit_deserialize() fails
– core: properly handle deserialization of unknown unit types (#6476)
– core: don’t create Requires for workdir if “missing ok” (bsc#1113083)
– logind: use manager_get_user_by_pid() where appropriate
– logind: rework manager_get_{user|session}_by_pid() a bit
– login: fix user@.service case, so we don’t allow nested sessions (#8051)
(bsc#1112024)
– core: be more defensive if we can’t determine per-connection socket peer
(#7329)
– core: introduce systemd.early_core_pattern= kernel cmdline option
– core: add missing ‘continue’ statement
– core/mount: fstype may be NULL
– journald: don’t ship systemd-journald-audit.socket (bsc#1109252)
– core: make “tmpfs” dependencies on swapfs a “default” dep, not an
“implicit” (bsc#1110445)
– mount: make sure we unmount tmpfs mounts before we deactivate swaps
(#7076)
– detect-virt: do not try to read all of /proc/cpuinfo (bsc#1109197)
– emergency: make sure console password agents don’t interfere with the
emergency shell
– man: document that ‘nofail’ also has an effect on ordering
– journald: take leading spaces into account in syslog_parse_identifier
– journal: do not remove multiple spaces after identifier in syslog message
– syslog: fix segfault in syslog_parse_priority()
– journal: fix syslog_parse_identifier()
– install: drop left-over debug message (#6913)
– Ship systemd-sysv-install helper via the main package This script was
part of systemd-sysvinit sub-package but it was wrong since
systemd-sysv-install is a script used to redirect enable/disable
operations to chkconfig when the unit targets are sysv init scripts.
Therefore it’s never been a SySV init tool.
– Add udev.no-partlabel-links kernel command-line option. This option can
be used to disable the generation of the by-partlabel symlinks
regardless of the name used. (bsc#1089761)
– man: SystemMaxUse= clarification in journald.conf(5). (bsc#1101040)
– systemctl: load unit if needed in “systemctl is-active” (bsc#1102908)
– core: don’t freeze OnCalendar= timer units when the clock goes back a
lot (bsc#1090944)
– Enable or disable machines.target according to the presets (bsc#1107941)
– cryptsetup: add support for sector-size= option (fate#325697)
– nspawn: always use permission mode 555 for /sys (bsc#1107640)
– Bugfix for a race condition between daemon-reload and other commands
(bsc#1105031)
– Fixes an issue where login with root credentials was not possible in
init level 5 (bsc#1091677)
– Fix an issue where services of type “notify” harmless DENIED log
entries. (bsc#991901)
– Does no longer adjust qgroups on existing subvolumes (bsc#1093753)
– cryptsetup: add support for sector-size= option (#9936) (fate#325697
bsc#1114135)
