    "infamous41md" discovered a buffer overflow in htget, a file grabber
    that will get files from HTTP servers.  It is possible to overflow a
    buffer and execute arbitrary code by accessing a malicious URL.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.93-1.1woody1.
    
    This package is not present in the testing and unstable distributions.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your htget package.
