DESCRIPTION:
Ubuntu has issued an update for accountsservice. This fixes a
security issue, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to
perform certain actions with escalated privileges.

The security issue is caused due to the application setting insecure
permissions on certain files when updating the language settings,
which can be exploited to modify arbitrary files.
