As flz said, wgetpro is also affected by the vulnerabilities, I don't
know the other ones.

The new wget 1.10alpha1 and newer aren't affected, so I just updated
VuXML to state this.  Note that I haven't tried the new wget, so I
don't know how stable etc. it is, but it might be with a try (it's the
ftp/wget-devel port at the moment).
