Debian Security Advisory DSA-4195-1                   security@debian.org

Package        : wget
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-0494
Debian Bug     : 898076

Harry Sintonen discovered that wget, a network utility to retrieve files
from the web, does not properly handle '\r\n' from continuation lines
while parsing the Set-Cookie HTTP header. A malicious web server could
use this flaw to inject arbitrary cookies to the cookie jar file, adding
new or replacing existing cookie values.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
in version 1.16-1+deb8u5.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.18-5+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your wget packages.

For the detailed security status of wget please refer to its security
tracker page at:
https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/wget
