php7.0, php7.2 vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in PHP.

Software Description:
- php7.2: HTML-embedded scripting language interpreter
- php7.0: HTML-embedded scripting language interpreter


It was discovered that PHP incorrectly handled certain exif tags in JPEG
images. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause PHP to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
