 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:218
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : lynx
 Date    : October 28, 2008
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was found in the Lynxcgi: URI handler that could allow
 an attacker to create a web page redirecting to a malicious URL that
 would execute arbitrary code as the user running Lynx, if they were
 using the non-default Advanced user mode (CVE-2008-4690).
 
 This update corrects these issues and, in addition, makes Lynx always
 prompt the user before loading a lynxcgi: URI.  As well, the default
 lynx.cfg configuration file marks all lynxcgi: URIs as untrusted.
