openSUSE 15 Security Update : libtorrent-rasterbar, qbittorrent (openSUSE-SU-2023:0391-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 186683



The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The remote openSUSE 15 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the openSUSE- SU-2023:0391-1 advisory.

- All versions of the qBittorrent client through 4.5.5 use default credentials when the web user interface is enabled. The administrator is not forced to change the default credentials. As of 4.5.5, this issue has not been fixed. A remote attacker can use the default credentials to authenticate and execute arbitrary operating system commands using the external program feature in the web user interface. This was reportedly exploited in the wild in March 2023. (CVE-2023-30801)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected packages.
