Use CVE-2008-4190.

There's probably also a second-order symlink vulnerability in the call to
wget using ipsec.olts.remote.log as an output file.  Has that been
addressed/investigated?

Note to source auditors - pay close attention to second-order symlinks, I
bet they're hidden in a lot of places.

Use CVE-2008-4192, to be filled in later.
