apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.7) bionic-security; urgency=medium
* SECURITY UPDATE: TOCTOU issue allows local user to read arbitrary
files (LP: #1830858)
- apport/ Avoid TOCTOU issue on users ignore file by
dropping privileges and then opening the file both test for access and
open the file in a single operation, instead of using access() before
reading the file which could be abused by a symlink to cause Apport to
read and embed an arbitrary file in the resulting crash dump.
- CVE-2019-7307

apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.6) bionic; urgency=medium
* data/general-hooks/ Fix UnicodeDecodeError when processing
DpkgTerminalLog. (LP: #1766337)
* debian/apport-autoreport.service: Since this calls whoopsie-upload-all
which fails if whoopsie isn't running, it should have a relationship with
whoopsie.service. (LP: #1787729)

apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.5) bionic; urgency=medium
* apport/ when using ubuntu-bug properly handle executables which
start with /snap/bin. (LP: #1760220)
* test/ Increase the timeout so that when the autopkgtest
infrastructure is busy the tests should not fail. (LP: #1780767)

apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.4) bionic; urgency=medium
* Handle old reports generated pre-apport with "remember" option.
If the option isn't there, consider as false. (LP: #1791324)

apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.3) bionic; urgency=medium
[ Didier Roche ]
* Add a remember option to whoopsie so that users can diminish
crash interactions (LP: #1778497)
* Move apport autoreport service files to apport binary package.
Having them in apport-noui was creating a bug where autoreport
wasn't working on desktop. As we check in the launched script
for whoopsie and autoreport file, we don't autoreport by default.
(LP: #1778694)
apport-noui still touches the file to enable autoreport on install.
* Remove upstart service and watershed dependency.
* Assume if no whoopsie that crash reporting is enabled:
As the old configuration that was a whoopsie configuration file that was
that was never updated by the whoopsie API, we assume that no
whoopsie installed (not the default) == manual send report is allowed.
If people want to disable crash reporting:
- get whoopsie installed and disable crash reporting in g-c-c
- uninstall apport
[ Brian Murray ]
* Start apport-autoreport after installing apport-noui which is part of
improving apport's automatic crash reporing feature. (LP: #1778694)

apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.2) bionic; urgency=medium
* apport/ Include ProblemType in reports which are updated as
package hooks may expect the report to have a ProblemType. (LP: #1766794)
* test/ modify run_crash_kernel test to account for the fact
that linux-image-$kvers-$flavor is now built from the linux-signed
source package on amd64 and ppc64el. (LP: #1766740)
* data/general-hooks/ Don't display a messy error if python or
python3 is not installed. (LP: #1769262)
* debian/apport.links: -> package
hook (LP: #1773012)
* data/package-hooks/ Redirect bugs filed about the
linux-signed source package to linux. (LP: #1773012)

apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.1) bionic-security; urgency=medium
* data/apport: Properly handle crashes originating from a PID namespace.
(LP: #1746668)
- CVE-2018-6552
2018-04-24 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <>
apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7) bionic; urgency=medium
* debian/control: Drop x-terminal-emulator to Suggests: to avoid pulling
it in unnecessarily when we only want it to support apport-retrace.
