                       Red Hat Security Advisory
    
    Synopsis:          Moderate: systemd security, bug fix, and enhancement update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2019:3592-01
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2019:3592
    Issue date:        2019-11-05
    CVE Names:         CVE-2019-15718 
    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    An update for systemd is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
    of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
    gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
    the CVE link(s) in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux BaseOS (v. 8) - aarch64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64
    
    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: systemd-resolved allows unprivileged users to configure DNS
    (CVE-2019-15718)
