USN-4152-1: libsoup vulnerability

09 October 2019

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



  • libsoup2.4 - HTTP client/server library for GNOME


It was discovered that libsoup incorrectly handled parsing certain NTLM
messages. If a user or automated system were tricked into connecting to a
malicious server, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 19.04
Ubuntu 18.04

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