A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04 - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in libvpx.

Software Description: - libvpx: VP8 and VP9 video codec


It was discovered that libvpx did not properly handle certain malformed WebM media files. If an application using libvpx opened a specially crafted WebM file, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.04:
libvpx5 1.7.0-3ubuntu0.19.04.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
libvpx5 1.7.0-3ubuntu0.18.04.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
libvpx3 1.5.0-2ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
