    rygel vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 19.10
    
    Summary:
    
    The system could be made to expose sensitive information.
    
    Software Description:
    - rygel: GNOME UPnP/DLNA services
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that the Rygel package automatically started the daemon
    by default in user sessions. In certain environments, this resulted in
    media being shared contrary to expectations.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 19.10:
      rygel                           0.38.1-2ubuntu3.3
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make
    all the necessary changes.
