    Package        : wget
    Problem type   : directory traversal
                     buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    CVEs           : CAN-2002-1344
    
    Two problems have been found in the wget package as distributed in
    Debian GNU/Linux:
    
    * Stefano Zacchiroli found a buffer overrun in the url_filename function,
      which would make wget segfault on very long URLs
    
    * Steven M. Christey discovered that wget did not verify the FTP server
      response to a NLST command: it must not contain any directory information,
      since that can be used to make a FTP client overwrite arbitrary files.
    
    Both problems have been fixed in version 1.5.3-3.1 for Debian GNU/Linux
    2.2/potato and version 1.8.1-6.1 for Debian GNU/Linux 3.0/woody.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Obtaining updates:
    
      By hand:
        wget URL
            will fetch the file for you.
        dpkg -i FILENAME.deb
            will install the fetched file.
    
      With apt:
        deb  https://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
            added to /etc/apt/sources.list will provide security updates
