Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51452
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:720
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:720
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2003:720.

Lynx is a text terminal based web browser.

Ulf Harnhammar reported[1] a CRLF (Carriage Return, Line Feed)
injection vulnerability in lynx. When handling a URL supplied through
the command line, lynx does not filter out characters such as spaces,
CR, LF, etc, which allows an attacker to inject HTTP headers and
cause program misbehavior[2] by using a specially crafted URL.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2002-1405 to this issue[3].

The package distributed with Conectiva Linux 9 (lynx-2.8.4-25963cl)
already contains a fix and is not vulnerable to this problem.


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
