Description

This update for apparmor fixes the following issues:

These security issues were fixed:

  • CVE-2017-6507: Preserve unknown profiles when reloading apparmor.service (lp#1668892, boo#1029696)
  • boo#1017260: Migration to apparmor.service accidently disable AppArmor. Note: This will re-enable AppArmor if it was disabled by the last update. You'll need to "rcapparmor reload" to actually load the profiles, and then check aa-status for programs that need to be restarted to apply the profiles.

These non-security issues were fixed:

  • Fixed crash in aa-logprof on specific change_hat events
  • boo#1016259: Added var.mount dependeny to apparmor.service

The aa-remove-unknown utility was added to unload unknown profiles (lp#1668892)
