                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           wget
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:183
 Date:                   October 13th, 2005

 Affected versions:      2006.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability in libcurl's NTLM function can overflow a stack-based
 buffer if given too long a user name or domain name in NTLM
 authentication is enabled and either a) pass a user and domain name to
 libcurl that together are longer than 192 bytes or b) allow (lib)curl
 to follow HTTP redirects and the new URL contains a URL with a user and
 domain name that together are longer than 192 bytes.
 Wget, as of version 1.10, uses the NTLM code from libcurl and is also
 vulnerable to this issue.
 The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
