    Two vulnerabilities have been addressed in the systemd components
    systemd-tmpfiles and pam_systemd.so.
    
    CVE-2017-18078
    
        systemd-tmpfiles in systemd attempted to support ownership/permission
        changes on hardlinked files even if the fs.protected_hardlinks sysctl
        is turned off, which allowed local users to bypass intended access
        restrictions via vectors involving a hard link to a file for which
        the user lacked write access.
    
    CVE-2019-3842
    
        It was discovered that pam_systemd did not properly sanitize the
        environment before using the XDG_SEAT variable. It was possible for
        an attacker, in some particular configurations, to set a XDG_SEAT
        environment variable which allowed for commands to be checked against
        polkit policies using the "allow_active" element rather than
        "allow_any".
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    215-17+deb8u12.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your systemd packages.
