As I wrote earlier VLC 1.1.7 is released with some major bug fixes prior to VLC 1.1.6. And now Nate Muench has uploaded VLC PPA for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. VLC has fixed its Matroska (.mkv) and WebM remote code execution vulnerability.
To install in Ubuntu 10.04, open the terminal and paste the following codes:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc2
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc mozilla-plugin-vlc
You can also install VLC 1.1.6 in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick, refer here
