    Package        : lynx, lynx-ssl
    Problem type   : CRLF injection
    Debian-specific: no
    
    lynx (a text-only web browser) did not properly check for illegal
    characters in all places, including processing of command line options,
    which could be used to insert extra HTTP headers in a request.
    
    For Debian GNU/Linux 2.2/potato this has been fixed in version 2.8.3-1.1
    of the lynx package and version 2.8.3.1-1.1 of the lynx-ssl package.
    
    For Debian GNU/Linux 3.0/woody this has been fixed in version 2.8.4.1b-3.2
    of the lynx package and version 1:2.8.4.1b-3.1 of the lynx-ssl package.
