Description Kevin Graham 2007-11-21 18:31:53 EST
Description of problem:

Bug 108414 took care of crond, but crontab is not yet a PIE. Even though its not
long-running, it is SUID and user controlled, so presumably it should be rebuilt.

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

How reproducible:
$ eu-readelf -h /usr/bin/crontab | grep Type
Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2007-11-22 03:21:13 EST
Easy fix: adding -fpie option for crontab
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-02-01 13:59:35 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
