whoopsie regression
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.10
- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-4170-1 caused a regression in Whoopsie.

Software Description:
- whoopsie: Ubuntu error tracker submission

Details:

USN-4170-1 fixed a vulnerability in Whoopsie. The update caused Whoopsie to
crash when sending reports. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 Kevin Backhouse discovered Whoopsie incorrectly handled very large crash
 reports. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial
 of service, expose sensitive information or execute code as the whoopsie
 user.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 19.10:
  libwhoopsie0                    0.2.66ubuntu0.2
  whoopsie                        0.2.66ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 19.04:
  libwhoopsie0                    0.2.64ubuntu0.3
  whoopsie                        0.2.64ubuntu0.3

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  libwhoopsie0                    0.2.62ubuntu0.3
  whoopsie                        0.2.62ubuntu0.3

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  libwhoopsie0                    0.2.52.5ubuntu0.3
  whoopsie                        0.2.52.5ubuntu0.3

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
