The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201706-16
(GNU Wget: Header injection)
It was discovered that there was a header injection vulnerability in GNU
Wget which allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTTP headers via
CRLF sequences in the host subcomponent of a URL.
A remote attacker could inject arbitrary HTTP headers in requests by
tricking a user running GNU Wget into processing crafted URLs.
There is no known workaround at this time.
