"This release features an important security update to Tor Browser for Linux users. On Linux systems with GVfs/GIO support Firefox allows to bypass proxy settings as it ships a whitelist of supported protocols. Once an affected user navigates to a specially crafted URL the operating system may directly connect to the remote host, bypassing Tor Browser. Tails and Whonix users, and users of our sandboxed Tor Browser are unaffected, though."

2.) I can generalize that quite a bit. When systemd has a readily apparent benefit, however minor, and the potential negative effects seem abstract and tenuous by comparison, no matter how catastrophic the potential effect, it will be written off and ignored by most humans. As a species, we're just that short-sighted.
