    vlc vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in VLC.
    
    Software Description:
    - vlc: multimedia player and streamer
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that VLC incorrectly handled certain media files. If a
    user were tricked into opening a specially-crafted file, a remote attacker
    could use this issue to cause VLC to crash, resulting in 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:
      vlc                             3.0.8-0ubuntu19.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      vlc                             3.0.8-0ubuntu18.04.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
