Harry Sintonen discovered that wget 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 (CVE-2018-0494). The Mageia 6 package has been updated to version 1.19.5, which fixes this issue as well as other possible security issues found by fuzzing. The Mageia 5 package has been patched to fix CVE-2018-0494.
