Which version of wget did you audit?  What information leaks did you
check for during your audit?

Which SSL library did you configure wget to use?  Which version of
that SSL library did you audit?

Based on your knowledge of the protocols that wget supports, where did
you most expect to find information leaks in wget's source?  (Since
you claim that ‘wget is 100% safe to use with Tor’, clearly you didn't
find any information leaks.)

Which configuration of wget makes it use Tor ‘100% safe’ly?
