   An update that fixes 11 vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

   This update for libxkbcommon to version 0.8.2 fixes the following issues:

   - Fix a few NULL-dereferences, out-of-bounds access and undefined behavior
     in the XKB text format parser.
   - CVE-2018-15853: Endless recursion could have been used by local
     attackers to crash xkbcommon users by supplying a crafted keymap file
     that triggers boolean negation (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15854: Unchecked NULL pointer usage could have been used by
     local attackers to crash (NULL pointer dereference) the xkbcommon parser
     by supplying a crafted keymap file, because geometry tokens were
     desupported incorrectly (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15855: Unchecked NULL pointer usage could have been used by
     local attackers to crash (NULL pointer dereference) the xkbcommon parser
     by supplying a crafted keymap file, because the XkbFile for an
     xkb_geometry section was mishandled (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15856: An infinite loop when reaching EOL unexpectedly could be
     used by local attackers to cause a denial of service during parsing of
     crafted keymap files (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15857: An invalid free in ExprAppendMultiKeysymList could have
     been used by local attackers to crash xkbcommon keymap parsers or
     possibly have unspecified other impact by supplying a crafted keymap
     file (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15858: Unchecked NULL pointer usage when handling invalid
     aliases in CopyKeyAliasesToKeymap could have been used by local
     attackers to crash (NULL pointer dereference) the xkbcommon parser by
     supplying a crafted keymap file (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15859: Unchecked NULL pointer usage when parsing invalid atoms
     in ExprResolveLhs could have been used by local attackers to crash (NULL
     pointer dereference) the xkbcommon parser by supplying a crafted keymap
     file, because lookup failures are mishandled (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15861: Unchecked NULL pointer usage in ExprResolveLhs could
     have been used by local attackers to crash (NULL pointer dereference)
     the xkbcommon parser by supplying a crafted keymap file that triggers an
     xkb_intern_atom failure (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15862: Unchecked NULL pointer usage in LookupModMask could have
     been used by local attackers to crash (NULL pointer dereference) the
     xkbcommon parser by supplying a crafted keymap file with invalid virtual
     modifiers (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15863: Unchecked NULL pointer usage in ResolveStateAndPredicate
     could have been used by local attackers to crash (NULL pointer
     dereference) the xkbcommon parser by supplying a crafted keymap file
     with a no-op modmask expression (bsc#1105832).
   - CVE-2018-15864: Unchecked NULL pointer usage in resolve_keysym could
     have been used by local attackers to crash (NULL pointer dereference)
     the xkbcommon parser by supplying a crafted keymap file, because a map
     access attempt can
     occur for a map that was never created (bsc#1105832).
