Description

Reportbug, a tool designed to make the reporting of bugs in Debian easier, was further enhanced to automatically detect bug reports for potential regressions caused by a security update. After user confirmation an additional email with a copy of the report will be sent to the debian-lts mailing list.

This change requires a new dependency, python-requests, which will be installed automatically.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in version 6.4.4+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your reportbug packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
