Vulnerability  : insufficient escaping
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Teemu Salmela discovered that the elinks character mode web browser
performs insufficient sanitising of smb:// URIs, which might lead to the
execution of arbitrary shell commands.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.10.4-7.1.

fixed in version 0.11.1-1.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your elinks package.
