FreeBSD : ktorrent -- multiple vulnerabilities (73f53712-d028-11db-8c07-0211d85f11fb)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24797


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


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.


Update the affected packages.
