3. Problem description:
A cross-site scripting bug has been found in htdig. This issue could
allow an attacker to send a carefully crafted message, which could
result in causing the victim's machine to execute a malicious script.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name
CVE-2005-0085 to this issue.
All users of htdig should upgrade to these updated packages, which
include a backported patch to correct this issue.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Fvh [filenames]
where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.
Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:
or to use apt:
apt-get update; apt-get upgrade
This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.

configure yum and apt-get.
