apport (2.20.1-0ubuntu2.19) xenial-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.
    - CVE-2019-7307
