Fedora 27 : systemd (2018-eea8cb8b0e)

High Nessus Plugin ID 107039


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- a few memory leaks and uninitialized memory accesses

- systemd-networkd Remote= must be a unicast address (upstream issue #8088)

- add /run/systemd/user to the unit lookup path (upstream issue #8119)

- various fixes for journalctl leaking file descriptors on very quick file rotation (upstream issues #7998, #8198)

- systemd-resolved aborting on malformed packets (upstream issue #7888, oss-fuzz issue #5465)

No need to reboot or logout.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected systemd package.
