The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update fixes a security bug in wget, where evil servers could send terminal escape codes to the user calling wget. This would only affect interactive sessions. (CVE-2004-1488)

Additionally a previous '.file' fix was found to be buggy and replaced. This bug could lead to '.directories' not being retrievable and '_files' being overwritten.
