The version detected of GNU wget 1.x was while the latest version including one or more security fixes is 1.12.

I have it figured out that this program goes with the Notepad++ program.

Brussels false positive

Never mind folks. The cause wasn't Notepad++

The insecure file was in the "Wiley CulinarE-Companion 4" folder on my computer. I spoke with the people at Wiley Culinar and they said it must be a "false positive" since they have no reports of vulnerabilities for CulinarE-Companion.

Were do I report false positives here?
