Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

Since the package referred to in this bug is in universe or multiverse, it is community maintained. If you are able, I suggest posting a debdiff for this issue. When a debdiff is available, members of the security team will review it and publish the package. See the following link for more information:
