libvirt vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


libvirt could be made to crash under certain conditions.

Software Description:
- libvirt: Libvirt virtualization toolkit


It was discovered that libvirt incorrectly handled waiting for certain
agent events. An attacker inside a guest could possibly use this issue to
cause libvirtd to stop responding, resulting in a denial of service.

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

Ubuntu 18.10:
