Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated htdig packages that fix a security flaw are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

Hat Security Response Team.

The ht://Dig system is a Web search and indexing system for a small domain
or intranet.

attacker could construct a carefully crafted URL which can cause a web
browser to execute malicious script once visited. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-0085

Users of htdig should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch, and are not vulnerable to this issue.
