Details

Updated wget packages that fix a security issue are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility that can use either the HTTP or
FTP protocols.

A stack based buffer overflow bug was found in the wget implementation of
NTLM authentication. An attacker could execute arbitrary code on a user's
machine if the user can be tricked into connecting to a malicious web
server using NTLM authentication. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project has assigned the name CVE-2005-3185 to this issue.

All users of wget are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network,

RPMs being upgraded on your system.
