I found a daemon running as uid 0 that has a string format vulnerability. It is compiled with -Wformat-security and -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 on. I'm trying to write an exploit for it, but what I get is:

0000000000018370 <g_log_structured@plt>:

Is there any feasible way around this 'invalid %N$' abort?
