apport (2.17.2-0ubuntu1.7) vivid-security; urgency=medium

  * test_backend_apt_dpkg.py: Reset internal apt caches between tests. Avoids
    random test failures due to leaking paths from previous test cases.
  * 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 (2.17.2-0ubuntu1.6) vivid-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)
