Package: links
Version: 0.99+1.00pre12-1
Severity: normal
Tags: security

The following web page causes links to hang. I let it sit for about 10
minutes. It's also eating memory during this time.


This is CAN-2004-1616:

 Links allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption)
 via a web page or HTML email that contains a table with a td element and a
 large rowspan value,as demonstrated by mangleme.
