Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-09-14 09:17:03 UTC
From ${URL} :

User's IP address is exposed to the FTP server when automatically falling back from passive mode to active mode using PORT command. Wget is using normally passive mode, but this situation occurs when server rejects the PASV command. The real IP address is exposed 
even if client uses proxy server. Affected versions are <= 1.16.3.

CVE request:

Upstream patch:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
