- More information:
In the recently uploaded systemd security update (215-17+deb8u12 via DLA-1762-1), a regression was discovered in the fix for CVE-2017-18078.
The observation of Debian jessie LTS users was, that after upgrading to +deb8u12 temporary files would not have the correct ownerships and permissions anymore (instead of a file being owned by a specific user and/or group, files were being owned by root:root; setting POSIX file permissions (rwx, etc.) was also affected).
For Debian 8
Jessie, this regression problem has been fixed in version 215-17+deb8u13.
We recommend that you upgrade your systemd packages.
