===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-851-1           October 21, 2009
elinks vulnerabilities
CVE-2006-5925, CVE-2008-7224
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  elinks                          0.10.6-1ubuntu3.4
  elinks-lite                     0.10.6-1ubuntu3.4

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Elinks to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Teemu Salmela discovered that Elinks did not properly validate input when
processing smb:// URLs. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious
website and had smbclient installed, a remote attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
(CVE-2006-5925)

Jakub Wilk discovered a logic error in Elinks, leading to a buffer
overflow. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote
attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash, or possibly
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the
program. (CVE-2008-7224)


Updated packages for Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
