    In the recently uploaded systemd security update (215-17+deb8u12 via
    DLA-1762-1), a regression was discovered in the fix for CVE-2017-18078.
    
    The observation of Debian jessie LTS users was, that after upgrading to
    +deb8u12 temporary files would not have the correct ownerships and
    permissions anymore (instead of a file being owned by a specific user
    and/or group, files were being owned by root:root; setting POSIX file
    permissions (rwx, etc.) was also affected).
    
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this regression problem has been fixed in version
    215-17+deb8u13.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your systemd packages.
