Package        : wget
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitization
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-2252
Debian Bug     : 590296

It was discovered that wget, a command line tool for downloading files
from the WWW, uses server-provided file names when creating local
files.  This may lead to code execution in some scenarios.

After this update, wget will ignore server-provided file names.  You
can restore the old behavior in cases where it is not desirable by
invoking wget with the new --use-server-file-name option.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.11.4-2+lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your wget package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
