The /var/log/apport.log shows this:

ERROR: apport (pid 1068301) Tue Aug  2 23:01:48 2022: called for pid 1068300, signal 11, core limit 0, dump mode 1

ERROR: apport (pid 1068301) Tue Aug  2 23:01:48 2022: wrote report /var/crash/_usr_bin_altermime.119.crash

I review the /var/crash/_usr_bin_altermime.119.crash file like so:
$ sudo apport-unpack /var/crash/_usr_sbin_apache2.0.crash /var/crash/unpacked
$ gdb $(cat /var/crash/unpacked/ExecutablePath) /var/crash/unpacked/CoreDump

I see the following:
Core was generated by `/usr/bin/altermime --input=/var/spool/amavisd/tmp/amavis-20220725T140511-470358'.
Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The interesting thing about the error messages is that neither the file in the apport.log nor the directory in the crash file exist:

/var/spool/amavisd/tmp/amavis-20220802T215945-1064789-13hiXFcf/email-repl.txt
/var/spool/amavisd/tmp/amavis-20220725T140511-470358

Is this why we are getting a Segmentation fault? If so, what can be done to address the issue?

Thanks.

altermime is out of date and not maintained by its author, temporary solution is disabling it for signature signing.
