Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55075
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLSA-2005:985 (wget)
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLSA-2005:985 (wget)
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLSA-2005:985.

This announcement fixes a security vulnerability
in wget which could allow a specially prepared remote
web server to overwrite certain files via a
redirection URL containing a '..' that resolves
to the IP address of the malicious server, which
bypasses wget's filtering for '..' sequences.

It also fixes another vulnerability where wget
does not filter or quote control characters when
displaying HTTP responses to the terminal, which
may allow a specially crafted remote web server
to inject terminal escape sequences and execute
arbitrary code.

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