    Summary:
    
    USN-4170-1 caused a regression in Whoopsie.
    
    Software Description:
    - whoopsie: Ubuntu error tracker submission
    
    Details:
    
    USN-4170-1 fixed a vulnerability in Whoopsie. The update caused Whoopsie to
    crash when sending reports. This update fixes the problem.
    
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     Kevin Backhouse discovered Whoopsie incorrectly handled very large crash
     reports. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial
     of service, expose sensitive information or execute code as the whoopsie
     user.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 19.10:
