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

– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

LibRaw could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
opened a
specially crafted file.

Software Description:
– libraw: raw image decoder library

Details:

It was discovered that LibRaw incorrectly handled photo files. If
a user or
automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted
photo file, a
remote attacker could cause applications linked against LibRaw to
crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code.
