Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : wget
Version     : 1.10.2                      
Release     : 0.fc4                  
Summary     : A utility for retrieving files using the HTTP or FTP protocols.
Description :
GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility which can use either the HTTP or
FTP protocols. Wget features include the ability to work in the
background while you are logged out, recursive retrieval of
directories, file name wildcard matching, remote file timestamp
storage and comparison, use of Rest with FTP servers and Range with
HTTP servers to retrieve files over slow or unstable connections,
support for Proxy servers, and configurability.

Update Information:

A buffer overflow bug has been found in the NTLM    
authentication code of wget.   
Wget-1.10.1-4.fc4 from Fedora Core 4 was compiled    
using -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 which catches and blocks this   
issue. Therefore on Fedora Core 4 this can only result in   
the program being aborted and isn't a security issue.
