Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0933 :

An updated ELinks package that corrects a security vulnerability is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate 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 information disclosure flaw was found in the way ELinks passes https POST data to a proxy server. POST data sent via a proxy to an https site is not properly encrypted by ELinks, possibly allowing the disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2007-5034)

All users of Elinks are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch that resolves this issue.
