Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:218 http://www.mandriva.com/security/


Package : lynx Date : October 28, 2008 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0


Problem Description:

A vulnerability was found in the Lynxcgi: URI handler that could allow an attacker to create a web page redirecting to a malicious URL that would execute arbitrary code as the user running Lynx, if they were using the non-default Advanced user mode (CVE-2008-4690).

This update corrects these issues and, in addition, makes Lynx always prompt the user before loading a lynxcgi: URI. As well, the default lynx.cfg configuration file marks all lynxcgi: URIs as untrusted.
