The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:086 (wget).


A vulnerability in all versions of wget prior to and including 1.8.2 was
discovered by Steven M. Christey. The bug permits a malicious FTP server to
create or overwriet files anywhere on the local file system by sending filenames

clients write files that can later be used for attack against the client
machine.
