Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

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)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP2:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected systemd packages.
