Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-08 21:56:51 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.

Thanks,
Your friendly neighborhood tinderboxer

I suspect that the overflow is not really present, as the stack should be always aligned at even addresses.
However I fixed this
Thanks
