1 I'm sorry for the last email. My gmail made a mistake by sending an

3 Today I wanted to install nethack and found it is masked:
5 The following mask changes are necessary to proceed:
6 #required by nethack (argument)
7 # /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
8 # Tavis Ormandy <taviso@g.o> <taviso@g.o> (21 Mar 2006)
9 # masked pending unresolved security issues #125902
10 =games-roguelike/nethack-3.4.3-r1
12 Then I googled and view
13 It turned out the bug has been existed for more than six years and is
