    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no

    BugTraq ID     : 11443
    Debian Bug     : 296340
    
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been discoverd in lynx, the popular
    text-mode WWW browser.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    Project identifies the following vulnerabilities:
    
    CVE-2004-1617
    
        Michal Zalewski discovered that lynx is not able to grok invalid
        HTML including a TEXTAREA tag with a large COLS value and a large
        tag name in an element that is not terminated, and loops forever
        trying to render the broken HTML.
    
    CAN-2005-3120
    
        Ulf H�rnhammar discovered a buffer overflow that can be remotely
        exploited. During the handling of Asian characters when connecting
        to an NNTP server lynx can be tricked to write past the boundary
        of a buffer which can lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.8.5-2.5woody1.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.8.6-9sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lynx-cur package.
