Description Beech Horn 2005-09-19 05:20:13 UTC
Pages such as Gentoo Wiki, etc using Javascript will Segfault when using Links
compiled with javascript using SSP. Whilst this makes sense a solution to the
issue or an SSP/PaX safe javascript implementation would be nice.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compile links with javascript using an SSP enabled GCC
2.Open links on a javascript enabled page (i.e. Gentoo Wiki)
3.Run a piece of javascript.

Actual Results:  
Program exits politely indicating there is a segfault.

Expected Results:  
Allowed the javascript to execute nicely without segfaulting.

USE="javascript pax"

I'm not really sure if this is related to SSP/PaX. Which version are you using?
See Bug 100545.
Comment 2 Beech Horn 2005-09-19 05:45:46 UTC
The latest ebuild from portage (r17).

Nothing has a ~x86 build on my system, etc.

Using hardened Gentoo.

Using a non ssp gcc or doing a -javascript in USE fixes this issue.

OK, can you try w/ 2.1_pre18?
Comment 4 Beech Horn 2005-09-19 05:48:30 UTC
I should use the ~x86 r18 version - cheers for the bug link.

Hopefully it'll loose the ~x86 so that new stable emerged systems don't segfault.

pre18 is stable so closing.
