apport (2.20.10-0ubuntu13.4) cosmic-security; urgency=medium
* SECURITY UPDATE: TOCTOU issue allows local user to read arbitrary
files (LP: #1830858)
- apport/report.py: 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.
