Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:216: links

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the links package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:216 (links).

The links web browser with smbclient installed permits remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code via shell metacharacters in an smb:// URI, as
demonstrated by using PUT and GET statements.
Corporate 3.0 is not affected by this issue, as that version of links
does not have smb:// URI support.
Updated packages have disabled access to smb:// URIs.
