apport 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.22 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (2.20.1-0ubuntu2.22) xenial-security; urgency=medium

  [ Michael Hudson-Doyle ]
  * SECURITY REGRESSION: fix autopkgtest failures since recent security
    update (LP: #1854237)
    - Fix regression in creating report for crashing setuid process by getting
      kernel to tell us the executable path rather than reading
      /proc/[pid]/exe.
    - Fix deletion of partially written core files.
    - Fix test_get_logind_session to use new API.
    - Restore add_proc_info raising ValueError for a dead process.
    - Delete test_lock_symlink, no longer applicable now that the lock is
      created in a directory only root can write to.

  [ Tiago Stürmer Daitx ]
  * SECURITY REGRESSION: 'module' object has no attribute 'O_PATH'
    (LP: #1851806)
    - apport/report.py, apport/ui.py: use file descriptors for /proc/pid
      directory access only when running under python 3; prevent reading /proc
      maps under python 2 as it does not provide a secure way to do so; use
      io.open for better compatibility between python 2 and 3.
  * data/apport: fix number of arguments passed through socks into a container.
  * test/test_report.py: test login session with both pid and proc_pid_fd.
  * test/test_apport_valgrind.py: skip test_sandbox_cache_options if system
    has little memory.
  * test/test_ui.py: 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)

Binary packages built by this source

apport: automatically generate crash reports for debugging

 apport automatically collects data from crashed processes and
 compiles a problem report in /var/crash/. This utilizes the crashdump
 helper hook provided by the Ubuntu kernel.
 .
 This package also provides a command line frontend for browsing and
 handling the crash reports. For desktops, you should consider
 installing the GTK+ or Qt user interface (apport-gtk or apport-kde).

apport-gtk: GTK+ frontend for the apport crash report system

 apport automatically collects data from crashed processes and
 compiles a problem report in /var/crash/. This utilizes the crashdump
 helper hook provided by the Ubuntu kernel.
 .
 This package provides a GTK+ frontend for browsing and handling the
 crash reports.

apport-kde: KDE frontend for the apport crash report system

 apport automatically collects data from crashed processes and
 compiles a problem report in /var/crash/. This utilizes the crashdump
 helper hook provided by the Ubuntu kernel.
 .
 This package provides a KDE frontend for browsing and handling the
 crash reports.

apport-noui: tools for automatically reporting Apport crash reports

 apport automatically collects data from crashed processes and
 compiles a problem report in /var/crash/. This utilizes the crashdump
 helper hook provided by the Ubuntu kernel.
 .
 Installing this package will configure your system to automatically submit
 all new Apport crash reports.

apport-retrace: tools for reprocessing Apport crash reports

 apport-retrace recombines an Apport crash report (either a file or a
 Launchpad bug) and debug symbol packages (.ddebs) into fully symbolic
 stack traces. This can optionally use a sandbox for installing debug symbol
 packages and doing the processing, so that entire process of retracing crashes
 can happen with normal user privileges without changing the system.
 .
 You need to install gdb-multiarch if you want to be able to retrace crash
 reports which happened on a different architecture than the one you run
 apport-retrace on.

apport-valgrind: valgrind wrapper that first downloads debug symbols

 apport-valgrind is a valgrind wrapper that automatically downloads related
 available debug symbols and provides them to valgrind's memcheck tool, which
 is executed. The output is a valgrind log file ("valgrind.log") that contains
 stack traces (with as many symbols resolved as available) and that shows
 memory leaks.

dh-apport: debhelper extension for the apport crash report system

 apport automatically collects data from crashed processes and
 compiles a problem report in /var/crash/. This utilizes the crashdump
 helper hook provided by the Ubuntu kernel.
 .
 This package provides a debhelper extension to make it easier for other
 packages to include apport hooks.

python-apport: Python library for Apport crash report handling

 This Python package provides high-level functions for creating and
 handling apport crash reports:
 .
  * Query available and new reports.
  * Add OS, packaging, and process runtime information to a report.
  * Various frontend utility functions.
  * Python hook to generate crash reports when Python scripts fail.

python-problem-report: Python library to handle problem reports

 This Python library provides an interface for creating, modifying,
 and accessing standardized problem reports for program and kernel
 crashes and packaging bugs.
 .
 These problem reports use standard Debian control format syntax
 (RFC822).

python3-apport: Python 3 library for Apport crash report handling

 This Python package provides high-level functions for creating and
 handling apport crash reports:
 .
  * Query available and new reports.
  * Add OS, packaging, and process runtime information to a report.
  * Various frontend utility functions.
  * Python hook to generate crash reports when Python scripts fail.
