Description Mark J. Cox 2003-11-24 11:37:04 EST
A buffer overflow in the url_filename function for wget 1.8.1 allows
attackers to cause a segmentation fault via a long URL. Red Hat does not
believe that this issue is exploitable to allow an attacker to be able
to run arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2002-1565 to this issue.
