+ <description>
+ <p>
+ Teemu Salmela discovered an error in the validation code of "smb://"
+ URLs used by ELinks, the same issue as reported in GLSA 200612-16
+ concerning Links.
+ </p>
+ </description>
+ <impact type="normal">
+ <p>
+ A remote attacker could entice a user to browse to a specially crafted
+ "smb://" URL and execute arbitrary Samba commands, which would allow
+ the overwriting of arbitrary local files or the upload or download of
+ arbitrary files. This vulnerability can be exploited only if
+ "smbclient" is installed on the victim's computer, which is provided by
+ the "samba" Gentoo package.
+ </p>
+ </impact>
+ <workaround>
+ <p>
+ There is no known workaround at this time.
+ </p>
+ </workaround>
+ <resolution>
+ <p>
+ All ELinks users should upgrade to the latest version:
+ </p>
+ <code>
+ # emerge --sync
+ # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-client/elinks-0.11.2&quot;</code>
