  apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.17) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * apport/hookutils.py: workaround the fact that pkexec does not work in
    non-graphical environments yet (LP #1821415) by skipping the gathering of
    information as root because it isn't strictly necessary for a bug report.
    (LP: #1861451)

  [ Matthieu Clemenceau ]
  * Add in a source package hook symlink for linux-firmware. (LP: #1872059)

  apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.14) bionic-security; urgency=medium

  * SECURITY UPDATE: World writable root owned lock file created in user
    controllable location (LP: #1862348)
    - data/apport: Change location of lock file to be directly under
      /var/run so that regular users can not directly access it or perform
      symlink attacks.
    - CVE-2020-8831
  * SECURITY UPDATE: Race condition between report creation and ownership
    (LP: #1862933)
    - data/apport: When setting owner of report file use a file-descriptor
      to the report file instead of its path name to ensure that users can
      not cause Apport to change the ownership of other files via a
      symlink attack.
