Description

New wget packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/wget-1.18-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded. This version fixes a security vulnerability present in all old versions of wget. On a server redirect from HTTP to a FTP resource, wget would trust the HTTP server and use the name in the redirected URL as the destination filename. This behaviour was changed and now it works similarly as a redirect from HTTP to another HTTP resource so the original name is used as the destination file. To keep the previous behaviour the user must provide --trust-server-names. The vulnerability was discovered by Dawid Golunski and was reported by Beyond Security's SecuriTeam. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-4971 ( Security fix )

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab (http://osuosl.org) for donating FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)
