libvncserver vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in LibVNCServer.

Software Description:
- libvncserver: vnc server library


It was discovered that LibVNCServer incorrectly handled certain operations.
A remote attacker able to connect to applications using LibVNCServer could
possibly use this issue to obtain sensitive information, cause a denial of
service, or execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.10:
  libvncclient1                   0.9.11+dfsg-1.1ubuntu0.1
  libvncserver1                   0.9.11+dfsg-1.1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  libvncclient1                   0.9.11+dfsg-1ubuntu1.1
