Summary:           directory traversal bug
Date:              2002-12-19
Affected versions: TSL 1.5

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
  GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility which can use either the HTTP or
  FTP protocols.  Wget features include the ability to work in the
  background while you're logged out, recursive retrieval of
  directories, file name wildcard matching, remote file timestamp
  storage and comparison, use of Rest with FTP servers and Range with
  HTTP servers to retrieve files over slow or unstable connections,
  support for Proxy servers, and configurability.


Problem description:
  wget did not check the path sent back by an FTP server allowing an
  FTP server to create files containing path elements to higher up in
  the directory tree (i.e. "../../").
