A system and service manager.

Affected packages
================
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/glsamaker/models/glsa.py", line 326, in generate_mail_table
return self._generate_mail_table()
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/glsamaker/models/glsa.py", line 297, in _generate_mail_table

Description
==========
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in systemd. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
=====
Please review the referenced CVE identifiers for details.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All systemd users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/systemd-251.3"

All systemd-utils users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/systemd-utils-251.3"

Gentoo has discontinued support for sys-apps/systemd-tmpfiles, sys-
boot/systemd-boot, and sys-fs/udev. See the 2022-04-19-systemd-utils
news item. Users should unmerge it in favor of sys-apps/systemd-utils on
non-systemd systems:

# emerge --ask --depclean --verbose "sys-apps/systemd-tmpfiles" "sys-boot/systemd-boot" "sys-fs/udev"
# emerge --ask --verbose --oneshot ">=sys-apps/systemd-utils-251.3"
