Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-01-18 11:26:51 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.

The changes in the bug probably require a revbump.

Shall I file a new ticket with a revbump, which would incorporate the changes, as well as changes proposed in #526530?
