Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2012-2557
2012-02-28 09:13:18
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : systemd
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 37
Release     : 15.fc16
URL         : http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd
Summary     : A System and Service Manager
Description :
systemd is a system and service manager for Linux, compatible with
SysV and LSB init scripts. systemd provides aggressive parallelization
capabilities, uses socket and D-Bus activation for starting services,
offers on-demand starting of daemons, keeps track of processes using
Linux cgroups, 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
work as a drop-in replacement for sysvinit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This systemd update adds several fixes:

* logind created files under /run/user/ in an insecure manner. A local
attacker could create a symlink inside arbitrary directories
(CVE-2012-0871).
* permissions of PrivateTmp directories (RHBZ#790522)
* timedated did not run without ntp installed (RHBZ#790260)
* logind: allow PowerOff and Reboot via polkit
* loading of empty files in read_one_line_file() (fdo#45362)
* fix cgit URLs in manpages
