Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-16 07:30:58 UTC
You're receiving this bug because the package in Summary has produced _FORTIFY_SOURCE related warnings indicating the presence of a sure overflow in a static buffer.

Even though this is not always an indication of a security problem it might even be. So please check this out ASAP.

By the way, _FORTIFY_SOURCE is disabled when you disable optimisation, so don't try finding out the cause using -O0.

Still valid with 2.5.x?
Comment 3 William L. Thomson Jr. 2012-02-09 16:26:16 UTC
Not sure I started looking into it but fell off, I assume its still an issue and needs to be addressed.

Ping, we're more than a year later; can you look into this?

If you don't have time now, please move to Gentoo Security / Vulnerabilities and re-assign to security@g.o (move wlt to CC) so this is at least tracked.
