The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated ELinks package that corrects a security vulnerability is
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
ELinks is a text mode Web browser used from the command line that
supports rendering modern web pages.
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way ELinks passes
https POST data to a proxy server. POST data sent via a proxy to an
https site is not properly encrypted by ELinks, possibly allowing the
disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2007-5034)
All users of Elinks are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch that resolves this issue.
