USN-4120-2: systemd regression

10 September 2019

USN-4120-1 caused a regression in systemd.



  • systemd - system and service manager


USN-4120-1 fixed a vulnerability in systemd. The update included a recent
SRU from the updates pocket that introduced networking problems for some
users. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

It was discovered that the systemd-resolved D-Bus interface did not
enforce appropriate access controls. A local unprivileged user could
exploit this to modify a system's DNS resolver settings.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.04
Ubuntu 18.04

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
