The following packages are affected: wget wget-devel wgetpro wget+ipv6 CVE-2004-1487 wget 1.8.x and 1.9.x allows a remote malicious 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. CVE-2004-1488 wget 1.8.x and 1.9.x does not filter or quote control characters when displaying HTTP responses to the terminal, which may allow remote malicious web servers to inject terminal escape sequences and execute arbitrary code.
