Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-01-15 05:15:39 EST
I can not reproduce this.
Comment 2 Kasper Dupont 2004-03-05 04:13:41 EST
I managed to get a core dump from a segfaulting newaliases command.


The core dump was produced by copying /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail to
/root/bin/newaliases, removing suid bit from the copy, and finaly
executing the command "while /root/bin/newaliases ; do true ; done".
