Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated wget packages that fix a security issue are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red

GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility that can use either the HTTP or
FTP protocols.

A stack based buffer overflow bug was found in the wget implementation of
NTLM authentication. A possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on a user's
machine if the user can be tricked into connecting to a malicious web
server using NTLM authentication. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project has assigned the name CVE-2005-3185 to this issue.

All users of wget are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.
