Security related updates would preferably provide more context
as a cue for users to evaluate urgency of applying the update
(or particular patch as denote below) and/or to consider the
risks involved.

That being said, there was this announcement at the oss-security list
earlier today: http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2018/04/12/2
from which I quote:

  An integer overflow leading to an out-of-bound read was found
  in authenticate_nss_2_3() in Corosync. An attacker could craft
  a malicious packet that would lead to a denial of service.
