CVE-2018-16865 (retired)

Priority
Description
An allocation of memory without limits, that could result in the stack
clashing with another memory region, was discovered in systemd-journald
when many entries are sent to the journal socket. A local attacker, or a
remote one if systemd-journal-remote is used, may use this flaw to crash
systemd-journald or execute code with journald privileges. Versions through
v240 are vulnerable.
