libsdl1.2 vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in SDL.

Software Description:
- libsdl1.2: Simple DirectMedia Layer


It was discovered that SDL incorrectly handled certain images. If a user
were tricked into opening a crafted image file, a remote attacker could
use this issue to cause SDL 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 18.04 LTS:
  libsdl1.2debian                 1.2.15+dfsg2-0.1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  libsdl1.2debian                 1.2.15+dfsg1-3ubuntu0.1
