libcroco vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Libcroco.

Software Description:
- libcroco: Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) parsing and manipulation toolkit

Details:

It was discovered that Libcroco was incorrectly accessing data 
structures when
reading bytes from memory, which could cause a heap buffer overflow. An 
attacker
could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2017-7960)

It was discovered that Libcroco was incorrectly handling invalid UTF-8 
values
when processing CSS files. An attacker could possibly use this issue to 
cause
a denial of service. (CVE-2017-8834, CVE-2017-8871)

It was discovered that Libcroco was incorrectly implementing recursion 
in one
of its parsing functions, which could cause an infinite recursion loop and a
stack overflow due to stack consumption. An attacker could possibly use this
issue to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2020-12825)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM:
libcroco-tools 0.6.11-1ubuntu0.1~esm1
libcroco3 0.6.11-1ubuntu0.1~esm1
