p11-kit vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in p11-kit.

Software Description:
- p11-kit: p11-glue utilities


David Cook discovered that p11-kit incorrectly handled certain memory
operations. An attacker could use this issue to cause p11-kit 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 20.10:
  libp11-kit0                     0.23.21-2ubuntu0.1
  p11-kit                         0.23.21-2ubuntu0.1
