An update that solves three vulnerabilities and has four fixes is now available.

Description:

This update for systemd provides the following fixes:
Security issues fixed:

  • CVE-2018-16864, CVE-2018-16865: Fixed two memory corruptions through attacker-controlled alloca()s (bsc#1120323)
  • CVE-2018-16866: Fixed an information leak in journald (bsc#1120323)
  • Fixed an issue during system startup in relation to encrypted swap disks (bsc#1119971)

Non-security issues fixed:
  • core: Queue loading transient units after setting their properties. (bsc#1115518)
  • logind: Stop managing VT switches if no sessions are registered on that VT. (bsc#1101591)
  • terminal-util: introduce vt_release() and vt_restore() helpers.
  • terminal: Unify code for resetting kbd utf8 mode a bit.
  • terminal Reset should honour default_utf8 kernel setting.
  • logind: Make session_restore_vt() static.
  • udev: Downgrade message when settting inotify watch up fails. (bsc#1005023)
  • log: Never log into foreign fd #2 in PID 1 or its pre-execve() children. (bsc#1114981)
  • udev: Ignore the exit code of systemd-detect-virt for memory hot-add. In SLE-12-SP3, 80-hotplug-cpu-mem.rules has a memory hot-add rule that uses systemd-detect-virt to detect non-zvm environment. The systemd-detect-virt returns exit failure code when it detected _none_ state. The exit failure code causes that the hot-add memory block can not be set to online. (bsc#1076696)
