Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

I hardening-no-fortify-functions

This package provides an ELF binary that lacks the use of fortified libc functions. Either there are no potentially unfortified functions called by any routines, all unfortified calls have already been fully validated at compile-time, or the package was not built with the default Debian compiler flags defined by dpkg-buildflags. If built using dpkg-buildflags directly, be sure to import CPPFLAGS.

NB: Due to false-positives, Lintian ignores some unprotected functions (e.g. memcpy).

Refer to https://wiki.debian.org/Hardening and https://bugs.debian.org/673112 for details.
