    ncmpc vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    ncmpc could be made to crash if it received a long chat message.
    
    Software Description:
    - ncmpc: ncurses-based audio player
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that ncmpc incorrectly handled long chat messages. A remote
    attacker could possibly exploit this with a crafted chat message, causing ncmpc
    to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2018-9240)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      ncmpc                           0.24-1+deb8u1build0.16.04.1
      ncmpc-lyrics                    0.24-1+deb8u1build0.16.04.1
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart ncmpc to make all the
    necessary changes.
