Exposure of Sensitive Information to an Unauthorized Actor
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.
CWE-200 - Information Exposure
An information exposure vulnerability is categorized as an information flow (IF) weakness, which can potentially allow unauthorized access to otherwise classified information in the application, such as confidential personal information (demographics, financials, health records, etc.), business secrets, and the application's internal environment.
