SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording 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)
