apport 2.17.2-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (2.17.2-0ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=medium

  * New upstream bug fix release:
    - SECURITY UPDATE: Disable crash forwarding to containers. The previous
      fix in 2.17.1 was not sufficient against all attack scenarios. By
      binding to specially crafted sockes, a normal user program could forge
      arbitrary entries in /proc/net/unix. We cannot currently rely on a
      kernel-side solution for this; this feature will be re-enabled once it
      gets re-done to be secure. (LP: #1444518)
    - apport-kde: Fix crash when showing byte array values. Thanks Jonathan
      Riddell. (LP: #1443659)
    - Really create a better duplicate signature for recoverable problems,
      using ExecutablePath. Thanks Brian Murray. (LP: #1316763)
  * Disable Launchpad crash upload for final Ubuntu 15.04.

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.
