Subject: tftpd-hpa - insecure chroot()

Just look at this code and guess how it would be compiled on most

    /* Chroot and drop privileges */
    if (secure) {
        if (chroot(".")) {
            syslog(LOG_ERR, "chroot: %m");
#ifdef __CYGWIN__
        chdir("/");             /* Cygwin chroot() bug workaround */
