Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 955282
gogoc package should be built with PIE flags
Last modified: 2014-03-24 23:44:06 EDT
Description of problem:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#PIE says that "you MUST
enable the PIE compiler flags if your package is long running ...".
However, currently gogoc is not being built with PIE flags. This is a
clear violation of the packaging guidelines.
This issue (in its wider scope) is being discussed at,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
You can use following programs to check if a package is hardened:
Steps to Reproduce:
Get scanner.py from https://github.com/kholia/checksec
$ ./scanner.py gogoc-1.2-23.fc19.x86_64.rpm
This package is already built with the macro _hardened_build
An example from the build log:
gcc -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1 -m64 -mtune=generic -O2 -Wall ...
I think "-specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1" does the -fPIE compiling, right?
Can be something wrong in your script? I will give it a look in more detail tomorrow.
