Description Trevor Spiteri 2011-09-01 10:58:34 UTC
I sent a bug report (bug 735069) using abrt. I edited the backtrace to replace a username with xxxxxx (which wasn't really that critical; in fact, the same username is found elsewhere in the same bug report). Then I edited the backtrace again and replaced xxxxxx with XXXXXX.

After submitting, I viewed the bug on bugzilla.redhat.com, and there were two copies of the backtrace, one as "backtrace" with the XXXXXX, and one as "backtrace~" with the xxxxxx. I guess that had I edited the backtrace only once, backtrace~ would contain the original text, which I supposedly edited to remove sensitive data.

Abrt used gedit for the editing.

Comment 1 Denys Vlasenko 2011-09-21 15:32:19 UTC
Already fixed in git. Corresponding code fragment is:

        if (short_name[0] == '#'
         || (short_name[0] && short_name[strlen(short_name) - 1] == '~')
        ) {
            //log("Excluded (editor backup file):'%s'", short_name);
            goto next;
