Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51559
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:552
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:552
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2002:552.

GNU wget is a freely available network utility to retrieve files
using HTTP and FTP.

Steven M. Christey reported[1] a vulnerability[2] in some ftp
clients, including wget up to version 1.8.2 (inclusive).

The vulnerability resides in the way wget handles server answers to
LIST and multiple GET requests. If the filenames in the answer begin
with characters pointing to parent directories (like ../ or /),
wget can download files to that location, thus overwritting arbitrary
files.

The version 1.8.2 distributed together with this advisory fixes that
vulnerability and some other minor bugs besides adding some new
features[3].


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
