Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-08 13:24:09 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.

Thanks,

pmacct-0.12.5-sin6_addr.patch

With the 0.12.5 version bump I apply the attached patch. Hopefully that should fix the bug.
