Thank you in advance! ** Changed in: apport (Ubuntu Artful) Status: Triaged => Fix Committed ** Tags added: verification-needed verification-needed-artful ** Changed in: apport (Ubuntu Xenial) Status: Triaged => Fix Committed ** Tags added: verification-needed-xenial -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to apport in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1738581 Title: apport attachment JounralErrors should only be included for crash reports which are private Status in apport package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in apport source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in apport source package in Artful: Fix Committed Bug description: [Impact] apport includes an attachment called JournalErrors which includes warnings and errors in journalctl output. This can in rare circumstances include private information. [Test Case] 1) Run ubuntu-bug apport 2) Observe JournalErrors attachment in the .crash file With the version of apport from -proposed JournalErrors will only be included in crash reports not regular bug reports. So follow the same test case and ensure JournalErrors is not included then run: 1) d-feet 2) pkill -11 d-feet 3) Observe JournalErrors in the d-feet .crash file [Regression Potential] Its possible my code is bad and then apport would crash when collecting journal errors. However, apport will just carry on and not include that attachment which would still be an improvement as there wouldn't be any private information included. See the bug report https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evolution/+bug/1738564 created with ubuntu-bug. Original Description -------------------- Apport includes the file JournalErrors.txt This file includes e.g. the following line. Dez 16 19:11:31 hostname /usr/lib/gdm3/gdm-x-session: dbus-update-activation-environment: setting MPD_HOST=xxxx...@xxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.org Normally it would be not problem that gdm-x-session write this to the journal, because the journal is not intended to be published on the internet. Setting confidential informations via environment is maybe not the best idea, but a legal procedure and for `mpc` the only way to set this information. IMHO the apport utility is here the problem, because it includes the file with risky information to a public visible bug report. Note: I manually delete the attachment in the mentioned bug report. But how can I sure that a web crawlser hasn't read/preserved that attachment?
