Details

It was discovered that poppler incorrectly handled certain files. If a user
or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an
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 19.04
Ubuntu 18.10
Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

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