Hallo linville, thanks for the update. Since this is marked as 'security update', is there anything seriously wrong with wireless-tools? Is there anything an attacker could utilize?

Cheers

I'm not aware of any particular problem. The build was simply ignoring some of the standard linker flags, including those in redhat-hardened-ld. The change now subjects the build to those linker options.

OK, thanks for the clarification. The 'security' tag usually triggers people to start taking actions or asking questions (me included .).

thanks again
