|Bugzilla:||873262: CVE-2012-5821 lynx: Does not verify that the server's certificate is signed by a trusted certification authority|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
Lynx does not verify that the server's certificate is signed by a trusted certification authority, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via a crafted certificate, related to improper use of a certain GnuTLS function.
Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of lynx as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 as they were not build against GnuTLS.
