Package : libtorrent-rasterbar
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2009-1760

It was discovered that the Rasterbar Bittorrent library performed
insufficient validation of path names specified in torrent files, which
could lead to denial of service by overwriting files.

The old stable distribution (etch) doesn't include libtorrent-rasterbar.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.13.1-2+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.14.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libtorrent-rasterbar package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
