Description

Updated htdig packages that fix a security flaw are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The ht://Dig system is a Web search and indexing system for a small domain or intranet. Michael Krax reported a cross-site scripting bug affecting htdig. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted URL which can cause a web browser to execute malicious script once visited. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2005-0085 to this issue. Users of htdig should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch, and are not vulnerable to this issue.
