An update that solves one vulnerability and has 6 fixes is now available.

Description:

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

  • CVE-2021-33910: Fixed a denial of service (stack exhaustion) in systemd (PID 1) (bsc#1188063)

Other fixes:
  • mount-util: shorten the loop a bit (#7545)
  • mount-util: do not use the official MAX_HANDLE_SZ (#7523)
  • mount-util: tape over name_to_handle_at() flakiness (#7517) (bsc#1184761)
  • mount-util: fix bad indenting
  • mount-util: EOVERFLOW might have other causes than buffer size issues
  • mount-util: fix error propagation in fd_fdinfo_mnt_id()
  • mount-util: drop exponential buffer growing in name_to_handle_at_loop()
  • udev: port udev_has_devtmpfs() to use path_get_mnt_id()
  • mount-util: add new path_get_mnt_id() call that queries the mnt ID of a path
  • mount-util: add name_to_handle_at_loop() wrapper around name_to_handle_at()
  • mount-util: accept that name_to_handle_at() might fail with EPERM (#5499)
  • basic: fallback to the fstat if we don't have access to the /proc/self/fdinfo
  • sysusers: use the usual comment style
  • test/TEST-21-SYSUSERS: add tests for new functionality
  • sysusers: allow admin/runtime overrides to command-line config
  • basic/strv: add function to insert items at position
  • sysusers: allow the shell to be specified
  • sysusers: move various user credential validity checks to src/basic/
  • man: reformat table in sysusers.d(5)
  • sysusers: take configuration as positional arguments
  • sysusers: emit a bit more info at debug level when locking fails
  • sysusers: allow force reusing existing user/group IDs (#8037)
  • sysusers: ensure GID in uid:gid syntax exists
  • sysusers: make ADD_GROUP always create a group
  • test: add TEST-21-SYSUSERS test
  • sysuser: use OrderedHashmap
  • sysusers: allow uid:gid in sysusers.conf files
  • sysusers: fix memleak (#4430)
  • These commits implement the option '--replace' for systemd-sysusers so %sysusers_create_package can be introduced in SLE and packages can rely on this rpm macro without wondering whether the macro is available on the different target the package is submitted to.
  • Expect 644 permissions for /usr/lib/udev/compat-symlink-generation (bsc#1185807)
  • systemctl: add --value option
  • execute: make sure to call into PAM after initializing resource limits (bsc#1184967)
  • rlimit-util: introduce setrlimit_closest_all()
  • system-conf: drop reference to ShutdownWatchdogUsec=
  • core: rename ShutdownWatchdogSec to RebootWatchdogSec (bsc#1185331)
  • Return -EAGAIN instead of -EALREADY from unit_reload (bsc#1185046)
  • rules: don't ignore Xen virtual interfaces anymore (bsc#1178561)
  • write_net_rules: set execute bits (bsc#1178561)
  • udev: rework network device renaming
  • Revert "Revert "udev: network device renaming - immediately give up if the target name isn't available""
