    Advisory text to describe the update.
    Wrap lines at ~75 chars.
    Updated libarchive packages fix security vulnerability:
    
    archive_read_support_format_lha.c in libarchive before 3.4.1 does not
    ensure valid sizes for UTF-16 input, which allows remote attackers to
    cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application
    crash) via a crafted LHA archive (CVE-2019-20509).
    
    The libarchive package has been updated to version 3.4.3, fixing this
    issue and other bugs.
