Description Michael Lee Yohe 2003-09-12 10:50:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030722

Description of problem:
When building the util-linux package, the warning message appears:

+ cd rescuept
+ cc -O2 -g -pipe -march=i686 -o rescuept rescuept.c
/tmp/cc5oZ991.o(.text+0x35): In function `read_sectors':
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/util-linux-2.11y/rescuept/rescuept.c:59: the `llseek'
function may be dangerous; use `lseek64' instead.
+ cd ..

I'm not sure if there is a potential vulnerability in the rescuept
program/library as a result, but it may want to be looked at.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see description

Actual Results:  You see the warning in the build process above.

Expected Results:  No warning message saying that a particular function being
used is considered dangerous.

Note the use of the word "may" in the warning message. Really doesn't matter...
If you have a chance, a patch would be great.
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2004-08-20 15:24:00 EDT
Patched to just use plain lseek and compile with _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
