E obsolete-crypt-alias

All reports of obsolete-crypt-alias for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The listed ELF binary appears to use the C library function

     fcrypt, which is a less-portable alias for crypt.
     Programs that use this function cannot be linked against the
     libcrypt.so provided by glibc 2.28 and higher.
     .
     The program should be changed to use crypt instead.
     .
     A false positive for this check is possible if the binary expects
     the definition of fcrypt to come from some shared library
     other than libcrypt.so, and that shared library
     defines this function to do something other than hash passphrases.
     If this is the case it is appropriate to override this tag.
    

Severity: important, Certainty: possible

Check: binaries, Type: binary, udeb
