|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Links: Denial of Service (GLSA 201402-11)
Date: February 07, 2014
An integer overflow in Links might allow remote attackers to cause
a Denial of Service condition.
Links is a web browser which runs in both graphics and text modes.
Vulnerable: < 2.8-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.8-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
An integer overflow vulnerability was found in the parsing of HTML
tables in the Links web browser when running in graphical mode.
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Links users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/links-2.8-r1"
