    Marko Myllynen discovered that elinks, a powerful text-mode browser, 
    incorrectly delegates user credentials during GSS-Negotiate.
    
    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.
