Posted on: 10/06/2009 08:35 PM

A new Wget vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-842-1 October 06, 2009
wget vulnerability
CVE-2009-3490
==========================
==========================
=========

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
wget 1.10.2-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
wget 1.10.2-3ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
wget 1.11.4-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
wget 1.11.4-2ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that Wget did not correctly handle SSL certificates with
zero bytes in the Common Name. A remote attacker could exploit this to
perform a man in the middle attack to view sensitive information or alter
encrypted communications.
