Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Two problems have been found in KTorrent :

- KTorrent does not properly sanitize file names to filter out '..'
components, so it's possible for an attacker to create a malicious
torrent in order to overwrite arbitrary files within the filesystem.

- Messages with invalid chunk indexes aren't rejected.
