Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1077] DSA-1077-1 lynx-ssl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1077-1 lynx-ssl

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Michal Zalewski discovered that lynx, the popular text-mode WWW
Browser, is not able to grok invalid HTML including a TEXTAREA tag
with a large COLS value and a large tag name in an element that is not
terminated, and loops forever trying to render the broken HTML. The
same code is present in lynx-ssl.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.8.4.1b-3.3.
The stable distribution (sarge) does not contain lynx-ssl packages
anymore.
The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain lynx-ssl packages
anymore.
We recommend that you upgrade your lynx-ssl package.
