The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
A vulnerability in all versions of wget prior to and including 1.8.2
was discovered by Steven M. Christey. The bug permits a malicious FTP
server to create or overwriet files anywhere on the local file system
by sending filenames beginning with '/' or containing '/../'. This can
be used to make vulnerable FTP clients write files that can later be
used for attack against the client machine.
