    glib-networking vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 19.10
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Fraudulent security certificates could allow sensitive
    information to be exposed when accessing the Internet.
    
    Software Description:
    - glib-networking: Network extensions for GLib
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that glib-networking skipped hostname certificate
    verification if the application failed to specify the server
    identity. A remote attacker could use this to perform a
    person-in-the-middle attack and expose sensitive information.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
      glib-networking                 2.64.2-1ubuntu0.1
    
    Ubuntu 19.10:
      glib-networking                 2.62.1-1ubuntu0.1
    
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      glib-networking                 2.56.0-1ubuntu0.1
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      glib-networking                 2.48.2-1~ubuntu16.04.2
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
