EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : wget (EulerOS-SA-2016-1064)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99826


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the wget package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- It was found that wget used a file name provided by the server for the downloaded file when following a HTTP redirect to a FTP server resource. This could cause wget to create a file with a different name than expected, possibly allowing the server to execute arbitrary code on the client.(CVE-2016-4971)

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


Update the affected wget package.
