Just want to give you very possitive feedback and say thanks.:)



I mailed Hrvoje the patch roughly 50 minutes after the notification (and 
he forwarded it to Mauro). Wget 1.10.2 was relased less than 14 hours 
after the first mail brought our attention to this problem.


Both Hrvoje and Mauro acted swiftly and promptly. Nice going guys!


i was notified of the vulnerability by hrvoje and daniel. when i 
received the security report daniel had aready sent us the bugfix. it 
took me no more than 30 minutes to include the patch in our stable 
branch and release wget 1.10.2.


thanks again, daniel.

(The plan was originally to coordinate the security fix release with vendors 
and between the curl and wget projects, but due to mistakes did the 
notification accidentally become public immediately and we had to work really 
fast to reduce the impact.)
