libsndfile vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in libsndfile.

Software Description:
- libsndfile: Library for reading/writing audio files


It was discovered that libsndfile incorrectly handled certain malformed
files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause libsndfile 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 18.10:
  libsndfile1                     1.0.28-4ubuntu0.18.10.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  libsndfile1                     1.0.28-4ubuntu0.18.04.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  libsndfile1                     1.0.25-10ubuntu0.16.04.2

After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make all
the necessary changes.
