Comment: Note that there are two Debian advisories in this bulletin - one
         containing information regarding lynx, the other for lynx-ssl.
         
         This advisory references vulnerabilities in products which run on
         platforms other than Debian. It is recommended that administrators
         running Lynx check for an updated version of the software
         for their operating system at http://lynx.isc.org.

Package        : lynx
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2004-1617
BugTraq ID     : 11443
Debian Bug     : 296340

Michal Zalewski discovered that lynx, the popular text-mode WWW
Browser, 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.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.8.4.1b-3.4.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.8.5-2sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.8.5-2sarge2.

We recommend that you upgrade your lynx package.
