    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4156-1

    libsdl1.2 vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in SDL.
    
    Software Description:
    - libsdl1.2: Simple DirectMedia Layer
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that SDL incorrectly handled certain images. If a user
    were tricked into opening a crafted image file, a remote attacker could
    use this issue to cause SDL 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 18.04 LTS:
      libsdl1.2debian                 1.2.15+dfsg2-0.1ubuntu0.1
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      libsdl1.2debian                 1.2.15+dfsg1-3ubuntu0.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
