Title:Ubuntu Update for ubuntu-core-launcher USN-2956-1
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'ubuntu-core-launcher'; package(s) announced via the USN-2956-1 advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'ubuntu-core-launcher'
package(s) announced via the USN-2956-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Zygmunt Krynicki discovered that ubuntu-core-launcher did not properly
sanitize its input and contained a logic error when determining the
mountpoint of bind mounts when using snaps on Ubuntu classic systems (eg,
traditional desktop and server). If a user were tricked into installing a
malicious snap with a crafted snap name, an attacker could perform a
delayed attack to steal data or execute code within the security context of
another snap. This issue did not affect Ubuntu Core systems.

Affected Software/OS:
ubuntu-core-launcher on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Please install the updated package(s).
