Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

crafted input data which triggered Qt warnings, this could be
exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the user
running the application.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Update the affected packages.
