Karim Hossen & Thomas Imbert and Nelson William Gamazo Sanchez
independently discovered that systemd-resolved incorrectly handled certain
DNS responses. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
systemd to temporarily stop responding, resulting in a denial of service.
This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. (CVE-2017-15908)
It was discovered that systemd incorrectly handled automounted volumes. A
local attacker could possibly use this issue to cause applications to hang,
resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2018-1049)
