Stephane Graber and Tavis Ormandy independently discovered that Apport incorrectly handled the crash reporting feature. A local attacker could use this issue to gain elevated privileges.

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