ELinks http_negotiate.c security bypass
|elinks-httpnegotiate-security-bypass (80882)||Medium Risk|
ELinks could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by improper handling of GSSAPI credentials by GSS-Negotiate feature in the http_negotiate.c when performing credential delegation. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass security restrictions and gain unauthorized access to the vulnerable application.
