RHSA-2006-0742: elinks

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the elinks packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated elinks package that corrects a security vulnerability is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

Elinks is a text mode Web browser used from the command line that supports
rendering modern web pages.

An arbitrary file access flaw was found in the Elinks SMB protocol handler.
A malicious web page could have caused Elinks to read or write files with
the permissions of the user running Elinks. (CVE-2006-5925)

All users of Elinks are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this issue by removing support for the SMB protocol from Elinks.

Note: this issue did not affect the Elinks package shipped with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3, or the Links package shipped with Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 2.1.
