Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.702592
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 2592-1 (elinks - programming error)
Summary:Marko Myllynen discovered that ELinks, a powerful text-mode browser,;incorrectly delegates user credentials during GSS-Negotiate.
Description:Summary:
Marko Myllynen discovered that ELinks, a powerful text-mode browser,
incorrectly delegates user credentials during GSS-Negotiate.

Affected Software/OS:
elinks on Debian Linux

Solution:
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.
