dom4j vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


dom4j could be made to expose sensitive information or run programs if it
received specially crafted input.

Software Description:
- dom4j: Flexible XML framework for Java


It was discovered that dom4j incorrectly handled reading XML data. A
remote attacker could exploit this with a crafted XML file to expose
sensitive data or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-10683)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  libdom4j-java                   1.6.1+dfsg.3-2ubuntu1.1

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