    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 Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.16-1+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wget packages.
