Description Mark J. Cox 2005-06-17 09:09:14 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #160778 +++

Ethereal (tethereal and gnome ethereal) are currently not compiled as position
independant executables (PIE).  A number of security issues recently would have
been mitigated somewhat by having Ethereal as PIE.  This is a request that we do
an update for Ethereal for FC3 and FC4

Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2005-08-03 13:18:01 UTC
FC3 and FC4 ethereals are now compiled as PIE.

Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2005-08-05 06:22:02 UTC
FC3 and FC4 updates are now relased.
