Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 395021
Make crontab a PIE
Last modified: 2012-05-16 04:49:04 EDT
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):
$ eu-readelf -h /usr/bin/crontab | grep Type
Easy fix: adding -fpie option for crontab
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 "?".
