Source diff to previous version

Version: 1.1.0~beta1ubuntu0.16.04.7 2020-01-22 20:07:05 UTC

  python-apt (1.1.0~beta1ubuntu0.16.04.7) xenial-security; urgency=medium

  * SECURITY UPDATE: Check that repository is trusted before downloading
    files from it (LP: #1858973)
    - apt/cache.py: Add checks to fetch_archives() and commit()
    - apt/package.py: Add checks to fetch_binary() and fetch_source()
    - CVE-2019-15796
  * SECURITY UPDATE: Do not use MD5 for verifying downloadeds
    (Closes: #944696) (#LP: #1858972)
    - apt/package.py: Use all hashes when fetching packages, and
      check that we have trusted hashes when downloading
    - CVE-2019-15795
  * To work around the new checks, the parameter allow_unauthenticated=True
    can be passed to the functions. It defaults to the value of the
    APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated option.
    - Bump Breaks aptdaemon (<< 1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu14.2), as it will have
      to set that parameter after having done validation.
  * Necessary backports:
    - turn elements in apt_pkg.SourceRecords.files into a class, rather than
      a tuple (w/ legacy compat), so we can get to their hashes
    - add apt_pkg.HashStringList
    - add apt_pkg.Hashes.hashes
  * Automatic changes and fixes for external regressions:
    - Adjustments to test suite and CI to fix CI regressions
    - Automatic mirror list update
