Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Comment 2 John Doe 2006-07-15 16:27:54 UTC
Bug only presents if a * (wildcard) is found in /etc/hosts.

After a lot of messing about and rediscovering the bug on Fedoras 4 and 5, i
discovered if i removed the wildcard entries */ the bug disappeared.

Whether it is possible to patch the program to come up with a response along the
lines of character x was found in /etc/hosts and is not allowed, is unknown, but
due to the fact it isnt the most serious bug ever i'd say not to bother.

Thanks all
