    Software Description:

    It was discovered that GVfs incorrectly handled the admin backend. Files
    created or moved by the admin backend could end up with the wrong ownership
    information, contrary to expectations. This issue only affected Ubuntu
    18.04 LTS, Ubuntu 18.10, and Ubuntu 19.04. (CVE-2019-12447, CVE-2019-12448,
    It was discovered that GVfs incorrectly handled authentication on its
    private D-Bus socket. A local attacker could possibly connect to this
    socket and issue D-Bus calls. (CVE-2019-12795)
