Reporting Security Bugs

Although the bug I'm thinking of is not one I've encountered, I can't 
find anything on the web about how to report security vulnerabilities, 
e.g. possible buffer overruns, in Lynx.  Am I missing something.  If so, 
some search engine optimisation may be called for.

Most open source projects prefer such issues to be reported confidentially.

Segfault on Action: Save to File

Hi,

i am using lynx version 2.8.8rel.2 in a script to get a webpage and save it to a file.
On my resperry pi 2, that runs with arch-linux, i get a segfault at the point when i want to define the filename.
I think it happens because the url, which is the default filename, is too long.
The uri is 341 chararters long.

Is there a possibility to configure a default filename or the maximum filename length?

Also when i start the script on my mac with osx 10.10, i don’t get a segfault with the same lynx version.

Any help is appreciated

Regards,
Mark

Login in automatically on m.facebook.com

Dear all,

I'd like to have a way to log in automatically on m.facebook.com with
lynx. I tried

lynx "http://m.cacebook.com?email=xxx&pass=yyy"

But that does not seem to work and even if it would work I'd not like
this solution a lot since it meeans the password can be seen with ps.

Any suggestion on how this can be achieved, please?

Thanks,
Shérab.

Lynx source repo or just tarballs?

Trying to explore the source, I went to try and find a repo
containing the historical source of lynx but came up dry.  All I
found was the list-o-source-tarballs at
http://lynx.isc.org/current/index.html

Is there some git/mercurial/subversion/cvs/darcs/whatever repo that I
could point at to meander the history of lynx?

Thanks,

-Tim

Mutt to lynx on FreeBSD?

I'm trying to set up Mutt to use Lynx to view HTML mail.

After googling for info, I tried seting up a .mailcap like this:

    text/html; lynx %s; copiousoutput;

but when I went to view an email, I was still stuck in Mutt.
I suspended the program to do a ps, and saw this:

#6:27am# /home/boo> ps
   PID  TT  STAT      TIME COMMAND
77561  p0  Ss     0:00.17 -tcsh (tcsh)
96620  p0  T      0:00.06 mutt -F /usr/home/boo/.Muttrc
96626  p0  T      0:00.00 sh -c lynx '/tmp/muttYYvC91'
96627  p0  T      0:00.08 lynx /tmp/muttYYvC91
96641  p0  R+     0:00.00 ps

How to configure to make lynx display an email?

thanks,
-Walter

lynx 2.8.9dev3 does not check certificate expiration

Hello,

lynx 2.8.9dev3 (GnuTLS) invokes gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2() but
does not use/check all error flags. e.g. certificate expiration is not
checked. <https://bugs.debian.org/745835>. Find attached a patch
against 2.8.9dev3 to change the respective code to simply check for
/any/ error and use gnutls_certificate_verification_status_print() to
print what exactly failed. This follows the example in upstream's
documentation
<http://www.gnutls.org/manual/html_node/Simple-client-example-with-X_002e509-certificate-support.html#Simple-client-example-with-X_002e509-certificate-support>.

The respective function was added in GnuTLS 3.1.4 (released in
November 2012).

Please doublecheck, I am not a programmer by profession.

thanks, cu Andreas

Lynx doesn't follow 30* redirect if the Location is the same

Hi there,

If I do a request:

  POST /test

and this returns a 303 with:

    Location /test

Lynx decides not to redirect to the new /test URL...
If I change either the original request or the Location response to
include a query parameter (ie. s=t), Lynx redirects as expected.

Is this a bug or a feature? All browsers that I tested properly
redirect, except for Lynx and derivatives (Links, ELinks).

(Also see my SO question: http://stackoverflow.com/q/27879100/660921)

PS. I am *not* subscribed to this list, please CC me in replies!

Thanks,
Martin

Huge files on Win32

I've built the latest version using both MingW and MSVC. But
I'm having difficulty showing local huge-files (>4GB)
correctly. Without or with a "LIST_FORMAT: %5K %-12.12d %a",
doesn't matter. E.g from the command 'lynx f:/':
     -1122303K Nov 08 12:23 pagefile.sys

Please take a look at the attached screenshot.

AFAICS, Lynx/Win32 doesn't use a 'PRI_off_t "I64d"'
as it should here. Hence the roll-over into negative values.
But looking through the messy details in HTFile.c + HTUtils.h,
I have no clue how to fix this. Anyone?
