Description David Boyd 2010-12-22 22:30:11 UTC
apg -y results in segfault.

This appears to be identical to Debian bug #337116 which describes character buffer "salt" as being one byte too small.

I modified apg.c from "char salt[10];" to "char salt[11];" and output appears to be correct.

This problem does not occur with 6.4-RELEASE-p11, but does occur with 8.1-RELEASE-p2.


See above description.
How-To-Repeat: install port security/apg.

run "apg -d -y -n1".

  Added files:

  Fix a segfault when using the -y option.  While I'm here:
  - remove the MD5 checksum from the distfile
  - note upstream's BSD license
  - OPTIONSify the support for CrackLib
  - add a descriptive patch header to the existing patch-aa
  - remove the packetstorm master site, it only seems to carry a much
    older version of apg
  - bump PORTREVISION for the segfault fix

This should be fixed in the just-committed apg-2.3.0b_2. 
Thanks for bringing it up!
