Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS / 19.04 : libvpx vulnerabilities (USN-4199-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 131314

Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that libvpx did not properly handle certain malformed WebM media files. If an application using libvpx opened a specially crafted WebM file, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

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.

Solution

Update the affected libvpx3 and / or libvpx5 packages.
