    dpdk vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 19.10
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    DPDK could be made to consume resources if it received specially crafted
    input.
    
    Software Description:
    - dpdk: set of libraries for fast packet processing
    
    Details:
    
    Jason Wang discovered that DPDK incorrectly handled certain messages. An
    attacker in a malicious container could possibly use this issue to cause
    DPDK to leak resources, resulting in a denial of service.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 19.10:
      dpdk                            18.11.4-1ubuntu0.19.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 19.04:

      dpdk                            17.11.8-0~ubuntu18.04.2

    fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
    changes.
