The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-37
(LimeWire: Disclosure of sensitive information)
Two input validation errors were found in the handling of Gnutella
GET requests (CAN-2005-0788) and magnet requests (CAN-2005-0789).
A remote attacker can craft a specific Gnutella GET request or use
directory traversal on magnet requests to read arbitrary files on the
system with the rights of the user running LimeWire.
There is no known workaround at this time.
