The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated hanterm-xf package to correct a security issue is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.
This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Hanterm is a replacement for xterm, a X Window System terminal
emulator, that supports Hangul input and output.
A flaw was found in the Hanterm handling of Device Control Request
Status String (DECRQSS) escape sequences. An attacker could create a
malicious text file (or log entry, if unfiltered) that could run
arbitrary commands if read by a victim inside a Hanterm window.
All hanterm-xf users are advised to upgrade to the updated package,
which contains a backported patch to resolve this issue. All running
instances of hanterm must be restarted for the update to take effect.
