golang-websocket vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro)
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro)


Gorilla WebSocket could be made to crash if it received specially crafted
network traffic.

Software Description:
- golang-websocket: Go package implementing the WebSocket protocol


It was discovered that Gorilla WebSocket incorrectly handled decoding WebSocket
frames. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a crash, resulting
in a denial of service.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro):
  golang-websocket-dev            1.2.0-1ubuntu2+esm1

  golang-websocket-dev            0.0~git20150811.0.b6ab76f-1ubuntu0.1~esm1

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