Debian Security Advisory DSA-2592-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff December 28, 2012 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : elinks Vulnerability : programming error Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-4545

Marko Myllynen discovered that elinks, a powerful text-mode browser, incorrectly delegates user credentials during GSS-Negotiate.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.12~pre5-2+squeeze1. Since the initial Squeeze release Xulrunner needed to be updated and the version currently in the archive is incompatible with Elinks. As such, Javascript support needed to be disabled (only a small subset of typical functionality was supported anyway). It will likely be re-enabled in a later point update

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 0.12~pre5-9.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.12~pre5-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your elinks packages.
