    Multiple security issues in systemd have been discovered by Sebastian
    Krahmer and Florian Weimer: Insecure interaction with DBUS could lead
    to the bypass of Policykit restrictions and privilege escalation or
    denial of service through an integer overflow in journald and missing 
    input sanitising in the processing of X keyboard extension (XKB) files.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 44-11+deb7u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your systemd packages.
