libjpeg-turbo vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 17.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

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

Software Description:
- libjpeg-turbo: library for handling JPEG files

Details:

It was discovered that libjpeg-turbo incorrectly handled certain malformed
JPEG images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
specially crafted JPEG image, a remote attacker could cause libjpeg-turbo
to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
libjpeg-turbo8 1.5.2-0ubuntu5.18.04.1

Ubuntu 17.10:

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
libjpeg-turbo8 1.4.2-0ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
