Package : ktorrent
Vulnerability : directory traversal
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-1799
Debian Bug : 432007

It was discovered that ktorrent, a BitTorrent client for KDE, was vulnerable
to a directory traversal bug which potentially allowed remote users to
overwrite arbitrary files.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
2.0.3+dfsg1-2etch1.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this package was not present.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was fixed in version
2.2.1.dfsg.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ktorrent package.
