crypt may modify constant data
cmd - userland programs
crypt(1) will modify constant data if built with -xstrconst or gcc without -fwritable-strings. It forces the key into environment by blatting it into the constant string "CrYpTkEy=XXXXXXXX".
It is distinctly possible that I may retarget this bug to EOF crypt(1), which is, at best, a distraction from any kind of real encryption (and at worse the same whilst also hideously ugly).
