Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 390981
textrel's in /usr/bin/at
Last modified: 2010-02-22 07:39:28 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):
host:~ # eu-readelf -d /usr/bin/at | grep TEXT
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
The problem doesn't occur in version of at-3.1.10.
_At_ is statically linked with libfl (from flex) -> opening bug on flex. _At_
needs rebuild after rebuild flex with -fpie option.
The last planned update of RHEL-4 will be focused on performance and security bugs only. This bug doesn't occur in RHEL-5.
