Date: 2017-11-11
Bug(s): #635496
ID: 201711-06


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Wget, the worst of
which could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.


GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP,
HTTPS and FTP, the most widely-used Internet protocols.

Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/wget
Vulnerable: < 1.19.1-r2
Unaffected: >= 1.19.1-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wget. Please review the
referenced CVE identifiers for details.


A remote attacker, by enticing a user to connect to a malicious server,
could remotely execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service


There is no known workaround at this time.


All Wget users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/wget-1.19.1-r2"
