    The Qualys Research Labs reported that the backported security fixes
    shipped in DSA 4367-1 contained a memory leak in systemd-journald. This
    and an unrelated bug in systemd-coredump are corrected in this update.
    
    Note that as the systemd-journald service is not restarted automatically
    a restart of the service or more safely a reboot is advised.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 232-25+deb9u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your systemd packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of systemd please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
