libvirt 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 libvirt.

Software Description:
- libvirt: Libvirt virtualization toolkit


Matthias Gerstner and Ján Tomko discovered that libvirt incorrectly handled
certain API calls. An attacker could possibly use this issue to check for
arbitrary files, or execute arbitrary binaries. In the default
installation, attackers would be isolated by the libvirt AppArmor profile.
