Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:095
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : ktorrent
Date : May 1, 2007
Affected: 2007.1
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A directory traversal vulnerability was found in KTorrent prior to
2.1.2, due to an incomplete fix for a prior directory traversal
vulnerability that was corrected in version 2.1.2. Previously,
KTorrent would only check for the string .., which could permit
strings such as ../.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
