USN-4199-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in libvpx. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 14.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that libvpx did not properly handle certain malformed
 WebM media files. If an application using libvpx opened a specially crafted
 WebM file, a remote attacker could cause 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 14.04 ESM:
  libvpx1                         1.3.0-2ubuntu0.1~esm1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
