apport (2.0.1-0ubuntu17.13) precise-security; urgency=medium

  * SECURITY FIX: When determining the path of a Python module for a program
    like "python -m module_name", avoid actually importing and running the
    module; this could lead to local root privilege escalation. Thanks to
    Gabriel Campana for discovering this and the fix!
    (CVE-2015-1341, LP: #1507480)

apport (2.0.1-0ubuntu17.12) precise-proposed; urgency=medium

  * Consistently intercept "report file already exists" errors in all
    writers of report files (package_hook, kernel_crashdump, and similar) to
    avoid unhandled exceptions on those. (LP: #1500450)
