  apport (2.20.7-0ubuntu3.7) artful-security; urgency=medium

  * REGRESSION UPDATE: Fix regression that caused a Traceback in the
    container support (LP: #1733366)
    - data/apport: add a second os.path.exists check to ensure we do not
      receive a Traceback in is_container_id() and add an exception handler in
      case either name space can not be found.

  * bin/apport-cli: read until <enter> instead of a single character when # of
    apport options is non-unique with a single character. Thanks to Chad Smith

  [ Stéphane Graber ]
  * REGRESSION UPDATE: Fix regression in previous upload by re-enabling
    container support. (LP: #1732518)
  * Add code preventing a user from confusing apport by using
    a manually crafted filesystem inside a combination of a user and mount
  * Add a check in apport receiver for the number of arguments so that
    should another argument be added later, the receiver will simply ignore
    the crash until it itself gets updated.

  apport (2.20.7-0ubuntu3.4) artful-security; urgency=medium

  * SECURITY UPDATE: Denial of service via resource exhaustion and
    privilege escalation when handling crashes of tainted processes
    (LP: #1726372)
    - When /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable is set to 2, do not assume that
      the user and group owning the /proc/<PID>/stat file is the same
      user and group that started the process. Rather check the dump
      mode of the crashed process and do not write a core file if its
      value is 2. Thanks to Sander Bos for discovering this issue!
    - CVE-2017-14177
  * SECURITY UPDATE: Denial of service via resource exhaustion,
    privilege escalation, and possible container escape when handling
    crashes of processes inside PID namespaces (LP: #1726372)
    - Change the method for determining if a crash is from a container
      so that there are no false positives from software using PID
      namespaces. Additionally, disable container crash forwarding by
      ignoring crashes that occur in a PID namespace. This functionality
      may be re-enabled in a future update. Thanks to Sander Bos for
      discovering this issue!
