glib2.0 regression

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


USN-4049-1 introduced a regression in GLib.

Software Description:
- glib2.0: GLib Input, Output and Streaming Library (fam module)


USN-4049-1 fixed a vulnerability in GLib. The update introduced a regression
in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS causing a possibly memory leak. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that GLib created directories and files without properly
 restricting permissions. An attacker could possibly use this issue to access
 sensitive information.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  libglib2.0-0                    2.48.2-0ubuntu4.4
  libglib2.0-bin                  2.48.2-0ubuntu4.4

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
