Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-06-18 17:05:08 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.

any news? Upstream marked the ticket as closed. Version is missing in the title, but 3.9 was released in Nov 2014.
