Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-26 22:14:53 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.

Uh, it's a player for very antiquated MP3 players (three models). I seriously doubt anyone is using one anymore... It's not the first bug I've had to deal with this package. Let's just get rid of it, please
