A vulnerablity in GNU Wget could allow arbitrary cookies to be injected.
|Package||net-misc/wget on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.19.5|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.19.5|
GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP, HTTPS and FTP, the most widely-used Internet protocols.
A vulnerability was discovered in GNU Wget’s resp_new function which does not validate \r\n sequences in continuation lines.
A remote attacker could inject arbitrary cookie entry requests.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNU Wget users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/wget-1.19.5"
