pulseaudio vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

PulseAudio could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:
- pulseaudio: PulseAudio sound server

Details:
