    Package        : wget
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-5953
    Debian Bug     : 926389
    
    Kusano Kazuhiko discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the
    handling of Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRI) in wget, a
    network utility to retrieve files from the web, which could result in
    the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service when recursively
    downloading from an untrusted server.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.18-5+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wget packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of wget please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
