The current recommended fix is to add the PPA at the following link to your repository list and then update your system to apply the fix:
There are two methods to apply the patch detailed below:
Run the following command to add the repositories using your package manager:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:inaddy/lp1415880
You can also add the repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list file manually. Just add the following lines to the end of the sources.list file as in the screenshot below (requires root access).
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/inaddy/lp1415880/ubuntu trusty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/inaddy/lp1415880/ubuntu trusty main
After the repositories are added then update your system by running the following command:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
