[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#357275: send_nsca: segfaults if non-trivial crypto function is chosen

Package: nsca
Severity: normal


if one runs send_nsca with a "real" cryptography algorithm, send_nsca
segfaults. This is caused by crypto_algorithm set to a string literal
in the code, but free()d in the de-initialization function in

This is a "could never had worked, how was it possible to have it
undetected" type bug which should be reported and fixed upstream.
