Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66112
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-851-1 (elinks)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-851-1 (elinks)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to elinks
announced via advisory USN-851-1.

Details follow:

Teemu Salmela discovered that Elinks did not properly validate input when
processing smb:// URLs. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious
website and had smbclient installed, a remote attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
(CVE-2006-5925)

Jakub Wilk discovered a logic error in Elinks, leading to a buffer
overflow. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote
attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash, or possibly
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the
program. (CVE-2008-7224)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
elinks 0.10.6-1ubuntu3.4
elinks-lite 0.10.6-1ubuntu3.4

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Elinks to effect
the necessary changes.
