229_4ubuntu17 removes group write permissions from /var/log
Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:
Steps to reproduce (time senstive, once lxd image is updated with
4ubuntu17, I expect this won't work)
lxc launch ubuntu:x test
lxc exec test -- ls -ld /var/log # shows 775 perms
lxc exec test -- apt update
lxc exec test -- apt-cache policy systemd
lxc exec test -- apt install systemd
lxc exec test -- ls -ld /var/log # shows 755 permissions
straceing the apt install shows no chmod calls to /var/log (only
/var/log/apt.log, as you'd expect)
This means syslog cannot write new files in /var/log, and had broken
some production logging for us as a result.
