3. Problem description:

GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility that can use either the HTTP or
FTP protocols.

A stack based buffer overflow bug was found in the wget implementation of
NTLM authentication.  An attacker could execute arbitrary code on a user's
machine if the user can be tricked into connecting to a malicious web
server using NTLM authentication. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project has assigned the name CVE-2005-3185 to this issue.

All users of wget are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

170666 - CVE-2005-3185 NTLM buffer overflow
