cvs commit: ports/mail/pine4 Makefile (fwd)
From: Kris Kennaway <kris () FREEBSD ORG>

It almost killed me to see this:

mollari# find pine4.21 -type f | xargs egrep '(sprintf|strcpy|strcat)' | wc -l
    4299

Don't use pine - I don't believe it is practical to make it secure. :-(

  Modified files:
    mail/pine4           Makefile
  Log:
  Mark FORBIDDEN: known buffer overflows exploitable by remote email.

  Parenthetically, no software which uses 4299 sprintf/strcpy/strcat
  calls can possibly be safe - I don't expect to remove this FORBIDDEN
  tag any time soon. :-(
