CVE-2021-25682 It was discovered that the get_pid_info() function in data/apport did not properly parse the /proc/pid/status file from the kernel.
CVE-2020-8833 Time-of-check Time-of-use Race Condition vulnerability on crash report ownership change in Apport allows for a possible privilege escalation opportunity. If fs.protected_symlinks is disabled, this can be exploited between the os.open and os.chown calls when the Apport cron script clears out crash files of size 0. A symlink with the same name as the deleted file can then be created upon which chown will be called, changing the file owner to root. Fixed in versions 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.23, 2.20.9-0ubuntu7.14, 2.20.11-0ubuntu8.8 and 2.20.11-0ubuntu22.
CVE-2020-8831 Apport creates a world writable lock file with root ownership in the world writable /var/lock/apport directory. If the apport/ directory does not exist (this is not uncommon as /var/lock is a tmpfs), it will create the directory, otherwise it will simply continue execution using the existing directory. This allows for a symlink attack if an attacker were to create a symlink at /var/lock/apport, changing apport's lock file location. This file could then be used to escalate privileges, for example. Fixed in versions 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.23, 2.20.9-0ubuntu7.14, 2.20.11-0ubuntu8.8 and 2.20.11-0ubuntu22.
CVE-2020-15702 TOCTOU Race Condition vulnerability in apport allows a local attacker to escalate privileges and execute arbitrary code. An attacker may exit the crashed process and exploit PID recycling to spawn a root process with the same PID as the crashed process, which can then be used to escalate privileges. Fixed in 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.24, 2.20.9 versions prior to 2.20.9-0ubuntu7.16 and 2.20.11 versions prior to 2.20.11-0ubuntu27.6. Was ZDI-CAN-11234.
CVE-2020-15701 An unhandled exception in check_ignored() in apport/report.py can be exploited by a local attacker to cause a denial of service. If the mtime attribute is a string value in apport-ignore.xml, it will trigger an unhandled exception, resulting in a crash. Fixed in 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.24, 2.20.9-0ubuntu7.16, 2.20.11-0ubuntu27.6.
CVE-2019-7307 Apport before versions 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.29+esm1, 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.19, 2.20.9-0ubuntu7.7, 2.20.10-0ubuntu27.1, 2.20.11-0ubuntu5 contained a TOCTTOU vulnerability when reading the users ~/.apport-ignore.xml file, which allows a local attacker to replace this file with a symlink to any other file on the system and so cause Apport to include the contents of this other file in the resulting crash report. The crash report could then be read by that user either by causing it to be uploaded and reported to Launchpad, or by leveraging some other vulnerability to read the resulting crash report, and so allow the user to read arbitrary files on the system.
CVE-2019-7306 Byobu Apport hook may disclose sensitive information since it automatically uploads the local user's .screenrc which may contain private hostnames, usernames and passwords. This issue affects: byobu
CVE-2019-15790 Apport reads and writes information on a crashed process to /proc/pid with elevated privileges. Apport then determines which user the crashed process belongs to by reading /proc/pid through get_pid_info() in data/apport. An unprivileged user could exploit this to read information about a privileged running process by exploiting PID recycling. This information could then be used to obtain ASLR offsets for a process with an existing memory corruption vulnerability. The initial fix introduced regressions in the Python Apport library due to a missing argument in Report.add_proc_environ in apport/report.py. It also caused an autopkgtest failure when reading /proc/pid and with Python 2 compatibility by reading /proc maps. The initial and subsequent regression fixes are in 2.20.11-0ubuntu16, 2.20.11-0ubuntu8.6, 2.20.9-0ubuntu7.12, 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.22 and 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.29+esm3.
CVE-2019-11485 Sander Bos discovered Apport's lock file was in a world-writable directory which allowed all users to prevent crash handling.
CVE-2019-11483 Sander Bos discovered Apport mishandled crash dumps originating from containers. This could be used by a local attacker to generate a crash report for a privileged process that is readable by an unprivileged user.
CVE-2019-11482 Sander Bos discovered a time of check to time of use (TOCTTOU) vulnerability in apport that allowed a user to cause core files to be written in arbitrary directories.
CVE-2019-11481 Kevin Backhouse discovered that apport would read a user-supplied configuration file with elevated privileges. By replacing the file with a symbolic link, a user could get apport to read any file on the system as root, with unknown consequences.
CVE-2018-6552 Apport does not properly handle crashes originating from a PID namespace allowing local users to create certain files as root which an attacker could leverage to perform a denial of service via resource exhaustion, possibly gain root privileges, or escape from containers. The is_same_ns() function returns True when /proc/<global pid>/ does not exist in order to indicate that the crash should be handled in the global namespace rather than inside of a container. However, the portion of the data/apport code that decides whether or not to forward a crash to a container does not always replace sys.argv[1] with the value stored in the host_pid variable when /proc/<global pid>/ does not exist which results in the container pid being used in the global namespace. This flaw affects versions 2.20.8-0ubuntu4 through 2.20.9-0ubuntu7, 2.20.7-0ubuntu3.7, 2.20.7-0ubuntu3.8, 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.15 through 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.17, and 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.28.
CVE-2017-14180 Apport 2.13 through 2.20.7 does not properly handle crashes originating from a PID namespace allowing local users to create certain files as root which an attacker could leverage to perform a denial of service via resource exhaustion or possibly gain root privileges, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-14179.
CVE-2017-14179 Apport before 2.13 does not properly handle crashes originating from a PID namespace allowing local users to create certain files as root which an attacker could leverage to perform a denial of service via resource exhaustion, possibly gain root privileges, or escape from containers.
CVE-2017-14177 Apport through 2.20.7 does not properly handle core dumps from setuid binaries allowing local users to create certain files as root which an attacker could leverage to perform a denial of service via resource exhaustion or possibly gain root privileges. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2015-1324.
CVE-2017-10708 An issue was discovered in Apport through 2.20.x. In apport/report.py, Apport sets the ExecutablePath field and it then uses the path to run package specific hooks without protecting against path traversal. This allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted .crash file.
CVE-2016-9951 An issue was discovered in Apport before 2.20.4. A malicious Apport crash file can contain a restart command in `RespawnCommand` or `ProcCmdline` fields. This command will be executed if a user clicks the Relaunch button on the Apport prompt from the malicious crash file. The fix is to only show the Relaunch button on Apport crash files generated by local systems. The Relaunch button will be hidden when crash files are opened directly in Apport-GTK.
CVE-2016-9950 An issue was discovered in Apport before 2.20.4. There is a path traversal issue in the Apport crash file "Package" and "SourcePackage" fields. These fields are used to build a path to the package specific hook files in the /usr/share/apport/package-hooks/ directory. An attacker can exploit this path traversal to execute arbitrary Python files from the local system.
CVE-2016-9949 An issue was discovered in Apport before 2.20.4. In apport/ui.py, Apport reads the CrashDB field and it then evaluates the field as Python code if it begins with a "{". This allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary Python code.
CVE-2015-1341 Any Python module in sys.path can be imported if the command line of the process triggering the coredump is Python and the first argument is -m in Apport before 2.19.2 function _python_module_path.
CVE-2015-1338 kernel_crashdump in Apport before 2.19 allows local users to cause a denial of service (disk consumption) or possibly gain privileges via a (1) symlink or (2) hard link attack on /var/crash/vmcore.log.
CVE-2015-1325 Race condition in Apport before 2.17.2-0ubuntu1.1 as packaged in Ubuntu 15.04, before 2.14.70ubuntu8.5 as packaged in Ubuntu 14.10, before 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.11 as packaged in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and before 2.0.1-0ubuntu17.9 as packaged in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS allow local users to write to arbitrary files and gain root privileges.
CVE-2015-1324 Apport before 2.17.2-0ubuntu1.1 as packaged in Ubuntu 15.04, before 2.14.70ubuntu8.5 as packaged in Ubuntu 14.10, before 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.11 as packaged in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and before 2.0.1-0ubuntu17.9 as packaged in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS allow local users to write to arbitrary files and gain root privileges by leveraging incorrect handling of permissions when generating core dumps for setuid binaries.
CVE-2015-1318 The crash reporting feature in Apport 2.13 through 2.17.x before 2.17.1 allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted usr/share/apport/apport file in a namespace (container).
CVE-2013-1067 Apport 2.12.5 and earlier uses weak permissions for core dump files created by setuid binaries, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading the file.
CVE-2012-0950 The Apport hook (DistUpgradeApport.py) in Update Manager, as used by Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 11.10, and 11.04, uploads the /var/log/dist-upgrade directory when reporting bugs to Launchpad, which allows remote attackers to read repository credentials by viewing a public bug report. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-0949.
CVE-2012-0949 The Apport hook in Update Manager as used by Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 11.10, and 11.04 uploads certain system state archive files when reporting bugs to Launchpad, which allows remote attackers to read repository credentials by viewing a public bug report.
CVE-2009-1295 Apport before 0.108.4 on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, before 0.119.2 on Ubuntu 8.10, and before 1.0-0ubuntu5.2 on Ubuntu 9.04 does not properly remove files from the application's crash-report directory, which allows local users to delete arbitrary files via unspecified vectors.
