 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:206-1
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : wget
 Date    : December 4, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in wget:
 
 GNU Wget before 1.12 does not properly handle a '\0' (NUL) character
 in a domain name in the Common Name field of an X.509 certificate,
 which allows man-in-the-middle remote attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL
 servers via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification
 Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408 (CVE-2009-3490).
 
 This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.

 Update:

 Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
 Corporate products.
