Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-14 12:43:56 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.

Right. tlf contains a lot of buffer overruns. I am working with upstream for some time to fix it. I think the new tlf-1.0.0 will be ready in next weeks.

After that I will take over maintainership of the package.
