Remember how systemd starting as root if the username starts with a digit isn't a bug? Turns out they're technically right. It's not a bug.

It's a bug worthy of a CVE. CVE-2017-1000082, which had to be requested by third parties. Like, I suspect, every systemd CVE ever.

Systemd has a bug where user names starting with a digit cause the user daemon to run with root privileges. According to the creator of systemd, this is not a bug and everything is fine. The reason everything is fine is because names like this, which are explicitly permitted by the base standards, are forbidden and tools shouldn't allow creating these names, so it's a bug in the tools for permitting names permitted by the standard.

Fsck systemd.
