Package        : lynx
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-38165
Debian Bug     : 991971

Thorsten Glaser and Axel Beckert reported that lynx, a non-graphical
(text-mode) web browser, does not properly handle the userinfo
subcomponent of a URI, which can lead to leaking of credential in
cleartext in SNI data.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.8.9rel.1-3+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your lynx packages.

For the detailed security status of lynx please refer to its security
tracker page at:
