Lintian Reports

E portable-executable-missing-security-features

A subset of the reports of portable-executable-missing-security-features for the archive. Unfortunately the full list is too long, so only 147 instances are listed on this page. At most 3 tags are shown per package. If you need the full list of tags, please download the lintian.log.gz file and extract the data you need.

The extended description of this tag is:

The package ships a Microsoft Windows Portable Executable (PE) file that appears to be lacking security hardening features.

You can see which are missing using the pesec tool from the pev package.

EFI binaries often trigger this tag. The security flags are probably meaningless for them, but the flags are easily changed using the genpeimg tool from the mingw-w64-tools package.

        $ genpeimg -d +d -d +n -d +s $file

Then, to verify that it worked:

        $ genpeimg -x $file
        Optional Characteristics:
          dynamic-base nx-compatible no-SEH

Please change the flags, if possible, instead of overriding the tag.

Severity: important, Certainty: certain

Check: pe, Type: binary

Emitted (non-overridden): 3912, overridden: 24, total: 3936

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
