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.
