GNU Wget SSL Certificate Security Bypass

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is using a version of Wget earlier than 1.12. Such versions are potentially affected by a security bypass vulnerability because the application fails to properly handle Common Name fields n X.509 certificates that contain an ASCII NULL character.

Solution

Upgrade to Wget 1.12 or later.
