apport (2.14.1-0ubuntu3.9) trusty-security; urgency=medium

  * SECURITY UPDATE: privilege escalation through namespaces and crafted
    chroot (LP: #1438345)
    - data/apport: If crash comes from a container, rather than
      chrooting into it, detect what LXC container it is and then use the
      attach_wait API call to execute apport in the container.
    - data/apport: Don't fail when encountering unicode characters.
      (Thanks to Martin Pitt)
    - test/test_signal_crashes.py: Test for the unicode fix.
      (Thanks to Martin Pitt)
    - CVE-2015-1318
