Debian Security Advisory

DLA-1511-1 reportbug -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
20 Sep 2018
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 878088.
More information:

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 two new dependencies, python-requests and python-apt.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 6.6.3+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your reportbug packages.
