Description

Updated htdig packages that resolve a security issue are 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.

The ht://Dig system is a complete World Wide Web indexing and searching system for a small domain or intranet. A cross-site scripting flaw was discovered in a htdig search page. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted URL, which once visited by an unsuspecting user, could cause a user's Web browser to execute malicious script in the context of the visited htdig search Web page. (CVE-2007-6110) Users of htdig are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patch to resolve this issue.
