SUSE SLES10 Security Update : wget (SUSE-SU-2014:1408-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 83642


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


wget was updated to fix one security issue :

- FTP symbolic link arbitrary filesystem access (CVE-2014-4877).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected wget package.
