vino vulnerabilities

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

An attacker could send crafted input to Vino and cause it to crash.

Software Description:

Kevin Chen discovered that Vino incorrectly handled certain client
framebuffer requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Vino
to crash, leading to a denial of service.

package versions:
