Is it possible to add;  --trust-server-names
To the WGETRC file ?

Nevermind.  It wasn't in the version of my documentation but the
following worked...

trust-server-names = on
You're aware of the risks of downloading files with names controlled by
the server, right?

I am downloading deliberately malware such that a download won't be called "ActiveX-Patch" but will be called "flv_codec_pack_112_full.exe" as the server intended.

But please, tell me the risks.

And how about a server that calls its malware ".bashrc"?

Since it is a non standard named file, I will open it in FileInsight and examine the binary. If I don't recognize its format, I'll run the TrID plug-in and detrrmine its format. I will treat the file accordingly.
