Debian Security Advisory DSA-1967-q security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : transmission
Vulnerability : directory traversal
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2010-0012

Dan Rosenberg discovered that Transmission, a lightwight client for
the Bittorrent filesharing protocol performs insufficient sanitising
of file names specified in .torrent files. This could lead to the
overwrite of local files with the privileges of the user running
Transmission if the user is tricked into opening a malicious torrent
file.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.22-1+lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.77-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your transmission packages.

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

wget url

dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

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