Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-01-31 16:05:55 UTC
Dear Auditors,

the checksec script available at is able to scan an elf through scanelf/readelf and report the hardening and/or the security status.

If the check goes well it is printed green, otherwise it is red.

While scanning some file provided by openrc, it prints the error about RUNPATH:

# sh checksec --file /bin/rc-status 
RELRO           STACK CANARY      NX            PIE             RPATH      RUNPATH      FORTIFY Fortified Fortifiable  FILE
Partial RELRO   No canary found   NX enabled    No PIE          No RPATH   RUNPATH      No      0               4       /bin/rc-status

The runpath issue comes up if the following contents exist:

# readelf -d /bin/rc-status  | grep runpath
 0x000000000000001d (RUNPATH)            Library runpath: [/lib64]

While I try to scan other executables I didn't get anything.

I didn't investigate deeply; can you clarify if this is something that we can report?

CC'ing hardened team if they know something about.
