    libsoup2.4 vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    libsoup could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network
    traffic.
    
    Software Description:
    - libsoup2.4: HTTP client/server library for GNOME
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that libsoup incorrectly handled parsing certain NTLM
    messages. If a user or automated system were tricked into connecting to a
    malicious server, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
    a denial of service.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 19.04:
      libsoup2.4-1                    2.66.1-1ubuntu0.1
    
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      libsoup2.4-1                    2.62.1-1ubuntu0.4
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
