Ubuntu Security Notice 3816-2 - USN-3816-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in systemd. However, the fix for CVE-2018-6954 was not sufficient. This update provides the remaining fixes. Jann Horn discovered that unit_deserialize incorrectly handled status messages above a certain length. A local attacker could potentially exploit this via NotifyAccess to inject arbitrary state across re-execution and obtain root privileges. Jann Horn discovered a race condition in chown_one. A local attacker could potentially exploit this by setting arbitrary permissions on certain files to obtain root privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.10. It was discovered that systemd-tmpfiles mishandled symlinks in non-terminal path components. A local attacker could potentially exploit this by gaining ownership of certain files to obtain root privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Various other issues were also addressed.
