Description lumpy_ 2000-01-10 04:18:59 UTC
lame buffer overflow exists with the -P command line
argument for the man program, which is apparently
installed set-gid "man".

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-01-18 13:11:59 UTC
Please be a bit more specific - I don't see an overflow there.
-P uses my_strdup, which allocates exactly as much space as it needs.
Feel free to re-open this bug if you thing I'm wrong.
