I lost count, the best I recall, it's one?

p.s. My nephew called me on my birthday with a riddle. He asked me,
"What do you call an elephant that isn't popular?"
"Irrelephant."

If the OP had read anything in the link they posted they would have seen this:
from: https://www.debian.org/security/2019/dsa-4393(same link)
---snip--- : For the detailed security status of systemd please refer to its security tracker page at: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/systemd
They could have just "clicked" the link, and seen the answer to the question.

And , yes you are right, it is the only one, so far this year, and for the current stable Debian, (stretch)has been fixed...for Debian Jessie, it has not.
from https://security-tracker.debian.org/tra ... ge/systemd
===========Bug jessie stretch buster = sid Description
CVE-2019-6454 vulnerable fixed vulnerable fixed systemd (PID1) crash with specially crafted D-Bus message
But any way , thanks for letting everyone know, so that they know to do a upgrade

I have no idea what you are talking about, but please, don't try to explain,..
Maybe, a mod can get the fire extinguisher, looks like the trolls are getting ready to have a barbecue, or something.

Oh, and Unix, Linux, and even Debian are all very user friendly, if and when the system admin decides to set up a user friendly system, Windows users don't find Unix like systems very friendly, and generally do not know how to administer any kind of system.

I trust China more than USA, though.
And I frequent safe subreddits :)
