=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for systemd is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4
Advanced Update Support, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 Telco Extended Update
Support, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 Update Services for SAP
Solutions.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server AUS (v. 7.4) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server E4S (v. 7.4) - ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional AUS (v. 7.4) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional E4S (v. 7.4) - ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional TUS (v. 7.4) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server TUS (v. 7.4) - x86_64

3. Description:

The systemd packages contain systemd, a system and service manager for
Linux, compatible with the SysV and LSB init scripts. It provides
aggressive parallelism capabilities, uses socket and D-Bus activation for
starting services, offers on-demand starting of daemons, and keeps track of
processes using Linux cgroups. In addition, it supports snapshotting and
restoring of the system state, maintains mount and automount points, and
implements an elaborate transactional dependency-based service control
logic. It can also work as a drop-in replacement for sysvinit.

Security Fix(es):

* systemd: line splitting via fgets() allows for state injection during
daemon-reexec (CVE-2018-15686)

* systemd: out-of-bounds read when parsing a crafted syslog message
(CVE-2018-16866)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
page(s) listed in the References section.
