Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'systemd' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the FEDORA-2019-8a7dfdf1f3 advisory.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
systemd is a system and service manager that runs as PID 1 and starts the rest of the system. It 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 control groups, maintains mount and automount points, and implements an elaborate transactional dependency-based service control logic. systemd supports SysV and LSB init scripts and works as a replacement for sysvinit. Other parts of this Linux Distribution Package are a logging daemon, utilities to control basic system configuration like the hostname, date, locale, maintain a list of logged-in users, system accounts, runtime directories and settings, and daemons to manage simple network configuration, network time synchronization, log forwarding, and name resolution.

Affected Versions:
'systemd' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Fedora 29.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Package(s).

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package
