(Ktorrent: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Bryan Burns of Juniper Networks discovered a vulnerability in
chunkcounter.cpp when processing large or negative idx values, and a
directory traversal vulnerability in torrent.cpp.
A remote attacker could entice a user to download a specially crafted
torrent file, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running Ktorrent.
There is no known workaround at this time.
