Version 1.5 now with RPATH and RUNPATH support.
November 17, 2011
- New checks for RPATH and RUNPATH elements in the dynamic sections. Thanks to Ollie Whitehouse.
- checksec.sh now takes account of the KBUILD_OUTPUT environment variable when checking the Linux kernel protection mechanisms (--kernel). Thanks to Martin Vaeth for the hint.
- Some minor changes and clean-ups. Thanks to Brian Davis.
- Ubuntu 11.10 support for --fortify-file and --fortify-proc.
For more information on why checksec.sh flags RPATH and RUNPATH, please refer to the following excellent post on Information Security Stack Exchange.
