Description Kevin Graham 2007-11-19 14:50:54 EST
Description of problem:

In at-3.1.8-80_EL4 (and presumably earlier versions as well) /usr/bin/at is
built as a PIE, but contains a textrel segment. 

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


How reproducible:

host:~ # eu-readelf -d /usr/bin/at | grep TEXT
host:~ #

Additional info:

Obviously there are plenty of other cases in RHEL4, but presumably at least SUID
binaries directly interacting with users should be taking advantage of available
Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2007-11-20 03:26:18 EST
The problem doesn't occur in version of at-3.1.10.
Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2007-11-20 03:39:19 EST
_At_ is statically linked with libfl (from flex) -> opening bug on flex. _At_
needs rebuild after rebuild flex with -fpie option.
Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-02-22 07:39:28 EST
The last planned update of RHEL-4 will be focused on performance and security bugs only. This bug doesn't occur in RHEL-5.
