                    Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Package name: lynx
    Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:023
    Date: February 24th, 2003

    Affected versions: 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0,
                            Multi Network Firewall 8.2,
                            Single Network Firewall 7.2
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Problem Description:

     A vulnerability was discovered in lynx, a text-mode web browser. The
     HTTP queries that lynx constructs are from arguments on the command
     line or the $WWW_HOME environment variable, but lynx does not properly
     sanitize special characters such as carriage returns or linefeeds.
     Extra headers can be inserted into the request because of this, which
     can cause scripts that use lynx to fetch data from the wrong site from
     servers that use virtual hosting.
