Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory: MDKSA-2005:098 - wget

Detail
====== 

 Two vulnerabilities were found in wget.  The first is that an HTTP
 redirect statement could be used to do a directory traversal and
 write to files outside of the current directory.  The second is that
 HTTP redirect statements could be used to overwrite dot ('.') files,
 potentially overwriting the user's configuration files (such as
 .bashrc, etc.).

                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           wget
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:098
 Date:                   June 9th, 2005

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0,
			 Corporate Server 2.1
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Two vulnerabilities were found in wget.  The first is that an HTTP
 redirect statement could be used to do a directory traversal and
 write to files outside of the current directory.  The second is that
 HTTP redirect statements could be used to overwrite dot ('.') files,
 potentially overwriting the user's configuration files (such as
 .bashrc, etc.).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to help address these problems
 by replacing dangerous directories and filenames containing the dot ('.')
 character with an underscore ('_') character.
