Created attachment 759390 [details]
archive with screenshot and two hardening-checkers
first thank you for the fedora-package
what i am missing is "Partial RELRO" which is detected by a perl script found the last days and actually i was able to change the output of some private packages from "Partial RELRO" to a green "Full RELRO"
attached a screnshot and both of my script called by "hardening-check.sh" to see the difference - the perl script seem to do a better job here and maybe something could be patched into "hardening-check" - the colored output would also be nice :-)
Thanks for your bug-report, in return. :)
The "Partial RELRO" issued by check-security.sh, is perfectly the same as hardening-check reporting: "RELRO: yes, Immediate Binding: no". See  for further reference.
For colored output you can use --color switch. More options are described in hardening-check's manpage and/or --help output.
I'll close here --> NOTABUG
got it - thank you
well, looks like you packacged "checksec" too - fine :-)
[harry@srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat /usr/local/bin/hardening-check
/usr/bin/hardening-check --color $1
/usr/bin/checksec --file $1
