Bug Description

apport hookutils.attach_drm open()s files as if they are text, and then processes the results as if they're unicode. Both are trouble.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 2.16.2-0ubuntu1

apport (2.16.2-0ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=medium

  * New upstream bug fix release:
    - ProblemReport: Set a timestamp of 0 in gzip compressed fields; they are
      meaningless and cause unnecessary jitter in the output.
    - launchpad backend: Fix unclosed file in upload().
    - launchpad backend: Fix wrong use of filter() with Python 3.
    - launchpad backend download(): Try to convert textual values from byte
      arrays into into strings.
    -, collect_info(): Fix crash on bug pattern checking with broken
      gzipped values. (LP: #1345653)
    - hookutils, attach_drm_info(): Avoid UnicodeDecodeErrors in Python 3 when
      reading binary files. Thanks Chad Miller. (LP: #1425254)
    - apport-gtk: Update legacy icon names to modern GTK ones, to fix icons
      under GNOME. Thanks Scott Sanbar. (LP: #1422176)
    - Move backend_apt_dpkg testsuite to use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
    - hookutils, attach_dmesg(): Only attach dmesg as CurrentDmesg, drop
      BootDmesg as /var/log/dmesg is upstart specific and thus not reliably
      correct any more.
    - hookutils, recent_syslog(): Read system logs from the journal when
      running under systemd, and fall back to /var/log/syslog if not.
    - hookutils, attach_mac_events(): Read kernel violation messages from
      dmesg instead of /var/log/kern.log, as that's specific to rsyslog and
      its configuration.
