This output contains basic information for every crash. The UID: field shows the ID of the user which ran the program that caused the crash. It is useful when abrt-cli is executed with superuser privileges and it lists crashes from all users. The Package field shows the name and version of the Fedora package that contains the program, and the Executable field shows the location of the binary or script that crashed. The Crash Count field indicates how many times the same crash happened.
