-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:121 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : wget Date : March 29, 2015 Affected: Business Server 2.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Updated wget package fixes security vulnerability: Wget was susceptible to a symlink attack which could create arbitrary files, directories or symbolic links and set their permissions when retrieving a directory recursively through FTP (CVE-2014-4877). The default settings in wget have been changed such that wget no longer creates local symbolic links, but rather traverses them and retrieves the pointed-to file in such a retrieval. The old behaviour can be attained by passing the --retr-symlinks=no option to the wget command. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-4877 http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2014-0431.html _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 2/X86_64: 41dc04fb6f6ec2bd55a3f8a971c75bab mbs2/x86_64/wget-1.14-5.1.mbs2.x86_64.rpm 32cc541180c974ae1e47566fc106a1ed mbs2/SRPMS/wget-1.14-5.1.mbs2.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
