Title: GNU Wget: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201908-19)
A vulnerability in GNU Wget might allow an attacker to execute
GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP,
HTTPS and FTP, the most widely-used Internet protocols.
Vulnerable: < 1.20.3
Unaffected: >= 1.20.3
Architectures: All supported architectures
A buffer overflow was discovered in GNU’s Wget.
An attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNU Wget users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/wget-1.20.3"
