    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in SPIP.
    
    Software Description:
    - spip: website engine for publishing
    
    Details:
    
    Youssouf Boulouiz discovered that SPIP incorrectly handled login error
    messages. A remote attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct
    cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2019-16392)
    
    Gilles Vincent discovered that SPIP incorrectly handled password reset
    requests. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause SPIP to
    enumerate registered users. (CVE-2019-16394)
    
    Guillaume Fahrner discovered that SPIP did not properly sanitize input. A
    remote authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to execute
    arbitrary code on the host server. (CVE-2019-11071)
    
    Sylvain Lefevre discovered that SPIP incorrectly handled user
    authorization. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to modify
    and publish content and modify the database. (CVE-2019-16391)
    
    It was discovered that SPIP did not properly sanitize input. A remote
    attacker could, through cross-site scripting (XSS) and PHP injection,
    exploit this to inject arbitrary web script or HTML. (CVE-2017-15736)
    
    Alexis Zucca discovered that SPIP incorrectly handled the media plugin. A
    remote authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to write to
    the database. (CVE-2019-19830)
    
    Christophe Laffont discovered that SPIP incorrectly handled redirect URLs.
    An attacker could use this issue to cause SPIP to crash, resulting in a
    denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-16393)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      spip                            3.1.4-4~deb9u3build0.18.04.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
