[Touch-packages] [Bug 1648806] Re: Arbitrary code execution through crafted CrashDB or Package/Source fields in .crash files

2016-12-16 Thread Benjamin Bach
Question: The release notes state: "Use ast.literal_eval() instead of the generic eval(), to prevent arbitrary code execution from malicious .crash files" The change should be in ui.py in this revision: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~apport-hackers/apport/trunk/revision/3114 Just to be clear:

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1790205] [NEW] systemd journals take up too much space, aren't vacuumed automatically

2018-08-31 Thread Benjamin Bach
Public bug reported: After running Bionic for 3 months, I had 2.6 GB of journals. I would not expect from a normal desktop user that they should have to run commands like `sudo journalctl --vacuum-time=10d`. I would nominate this command as a sane default to have running at each reboot to

Public bug reported: I'm reporting this in the role of a developer getting issue reports for non-Ubuntu projects. Apport could work great for this purpose, too, since it detects our system service's crashes. For us, the most valuable information is typically in the Traceback field (it's a Python

The fix by Terrence Houlahan works for me on 18.04. Thanks! However, I'm wondering if adding this "After" clause is a problem since the package doesn't currently depend on Network Manager? Does "NetworkManager-wait-online.service" satisfy a more generic SystemD target? >From the dnsmasq package:

Adding to my previous message: After=NetworkManager-wait-online.service will not work, as it doesn't respect for instance setups where networkd handles connections. @Robie Basak > Will this delay boot for laptop users who are offline, for example? If someone has installed the dnsmasq package

Same issue on Bionic, installed May 15 (2 months ago): ➜ ~ sudo journalctl --disk-usage Archived and active journals take up 4.1G in the file system. My logs are definitely clogged with endless JavaScript errors from gnome-shell. Something I would not expect
