CVE-2010-2252 - wget
This is finally getting fixed in wget upstream:
Giuseppe had to come up with his own patch (included at the end of the
posting above). He "couldn't" use Florian's patch for licensing reasons
(getting a patch into an FSF project requires some paperwork sent to the
FSF, and somehow this process got stalled at some stage).
The new option name is "--trust-server-names".
Some criticism from a wget user, and Giuseppe's answer (which I agree with):
So things look good. We should expect this feature and the safe default
in the next wget release.
(I did not test the patch myself, but I "trust" that it works.)
