Description JW 2006-02-27 06:33:48 EST
Description of problem:
Under certain circumstances strace will overflow a buffer

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

How reproducible:
You need to be strace'ing a suitably program.
But I am not going to suplly one because you only need to read the code to
discover the vulnerability.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.vi strace-4.5.11/desc.c
Actual results:
You say "How did this code get out the door".

Expected results:
You have nothing to say.
