A flaw was found in the way Wget handled symbolic links. A malicious
FTP server could allow Wget running in the mirror mode (using the '-m'
command line option) to write an arbitrary file to a location writable
to by the user running Wget, possibly leading to code execution.
Note: This update changes the default value of the --retr-symlinks
option. The file symbolic links are now traversed by default and
pointed-to files are retrieved rather than creating a symbolic link
