CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : wget
SUMMARY   : Buffer overflow vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-08-04 17:48:00
ID        : CLA-2003:716
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 GNU wget is a freely available network utility to retrieve files
 using HTTP and FTP.
 
 Stefano Zacchirol found a buffer overflow vulnerability in the code
 that handles URLs in wget. An attacker can create a long (more than
 256 characters), specially crafted URL that when parsed by wget can
 cause the execution of arbitrary code or program misbehavior. The
 packages included in this update fix the problem by unconditionally
 terminating long URLs in all cases.
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
 assigned the name CAN-2003-1565 to this issue[1].


SOLUTION
 All wget users are advised to upgrade.
