Description Martin Nagy 2008-04-11 15:12:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Squid is not built with %{optflags} and therefore lacks -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 and
-O2 flags. With these flags, squid will be more secure when processing untrusted
input (which it does a lot).

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

How reproducible:
See build logs.

Actual results:
no -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 flag used with gcc

Expected results:
-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 flag used with gcc
