Bug Fix Advisory wget bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0438-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-04-02
Last updated on: 2012-04-02
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated wget package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility which can use either the HTTP of FTP
protocols.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the wget utility failed with the "Connection timed out" message
when running the utility to get data from Microsoft Windows Server 2003 that had
returned an error for the "PORT" request. This was because wget did not
correctly handle the error in the accept_connection() function and therefore did
not attempt to retry upon the connection timeout. The underlying source code has
been modified to ensure that wget retries the connection in the described
scenario. (BZ#802438)

All users of wget are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
