Description

LSAC(v2)
ELinks is a text-based web browser. ELinks does not display any images, but it does support frames, tables, and most other HTML tags. It was found that ELinks performed client credentials delegation during the client-to-server GSS security mechanisms negotiation. A rogue server could use this flaw to obtain the client's credentials and impersonate that client to other servers that are using GSSAPI. (CVE-2012-4545) This issue was discovered by Marko Myllynen of Red Hat. All ELinks users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to resolve the issue.
