    3. Description:
    
    The systemd packages contain systemd, a system and service manager for
    Linux, compatible with the SysV and LSB init scripts. It provides
    aggressive parallelism capabilities, uses socket and D-Bus activation for
    starting services, offers on-demand starting of daemons, and keeps track of
    processes using Linux cgroups. In addition, it supports snapshotting and
    restoring of the system state, maintains mount and automount points, and
    implements an elaborate transactional dependency-based service control
    logic. It can also work as a drop-in replacement for sysvinit.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * systemd: Insufficient input validation in bus_process_object() resulting
    in PID 1 crash (CVE-2019-6454)
