An updated ELinks package that corrects a security vulnerability is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
ELinks is a text mode Web browser used from the command line that supports
rendering modern web pages.
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way ELinks passes https
POST data to a proxy server. POST data sent via a proxy to an https site is
not properly encrypted by ELinks, possibly allowing the disclosure of
sensitive information. (CVE-2007-5034)
All users of Elinks are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch that resolves this issue.
