wget can't handle '@' in password - affects ddns

Reported by: stel Owned by: developers

Keywords: wget ddns Cc:


wget can't handle '@' in password. here's the syntax from the ddns script.

wget -O -

which is garnered from /usr/lib/ddns/services i.e. this line for the case above.

""          "http://[USERNAME]:[PASSWORD][DOMAIN]&dnsto=[IP]

i only tested with zoneedit so i'm only passing on that example but i'm assuming the auth error is an http auth from seeing the '@' not as part of the password but as a delimiter. wget should put quotes around the password or scripts should. i tested that and it works i.e.

wget -O - http://username:'password'

i'm sure there's a workaround in one of the ddns scripts but the most obvious workaround is to not use '@' in your passwords.
