Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-372: wget

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the wget packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated wget packages that correct a buffer overrun are now available.

GNU Wget is a file-retrieval utility that uses the HTTP and FTP protocols.

A buffer overflow in the url_filename function for wget 1.8.1 permits
attackers to cause a segmentation fault via a long URL. Red Hat does not
believe that this issue is exploitable to permit a possible hacker to be able to
run arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2002-1565 to this issue.

Users of wget should install the erratum package, which contains a
backported security patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.
