A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in WebKitGTK+.

Software Description:
- webkit2gtk: Web content engine library for GTK+

crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a
denial of service, spoof the user interface, or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2018-4088, CVE-2018-4096, CVE-2017-7153, CVE-2017-7160,
CVE-2017-7161, CVE-2017-7165, CVE-2017-13884, CVE-2017-13885)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 17.10:
libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-18 2.18.6-0ubuntu0.17.10.1
libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 2.18.6-0ubuntu0.17.10.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-18 2.18.6-0ubuntu0.16.04.1
libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 2.18.6-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any applications
that use WebKitGTK+, such as Epiphany, to make all the necessary changes.
