wget: file overwrites and arbitrary code execution

Package(s):wget CVE #(s):CAN-2004-1487 CAN-2004-1488
Created:June 9, 2005 Updated:September 27, 2005
Description: 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.

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.
