Bug #15335

Ruby 2.6.0 is not properly fortified

Added by vo.x (Vit Ondruch) almost 2 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 2.6.0dev (2018-11-22 trunk 65928) [x86_64-linux]


For some while, we carry this test in Fedora package 1:

checksec -f{ruby_version} | \  
  grep "Full RELRO.*Canary found.*NX enabled.*DSO.*No RPATH.*No RUNPATH.*Yes.*\d*.*\d*.*{ruby_version}"

This should ensure, that the library is properly fortified 2. This test was passing with preview3, but it started to fail, testing with r65928:

$ checksec -f
WARNING: 'openssl' not found! It's required for most checks.

WARNING: Not all necessary commands found. Some tests might not work!

RELRO           STACK CANARY      NX            PIE             RPATH      RUNPATH  FORTIFY Fortified Fortifiable  FILE
Full RELRO      Canary found      NX disabled   DSO             No RPATH   No RUNPATH   Yes 16      42

The NX disabled is the difference. Looking at the log, it is definitely not about configuration options. So if I should point finger at something, it seems to me that this must be it:

I.e. the coroutines assembly. Not sure how to prove it nor fix it.
