SuSE 10 Security Update : ktorrent (ZYPP Patch Number 3049)

High Nessus Plugin ID 29498


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


Ktorrent insufficiently validated the target file name. A malicious Server could therefore overwrite arbitary files of the user (CVE-2007-1384 / CVE-2007-1799). Another bug could be exploited to crash Ktorrent. (CVE-2007-1385)


Apply ZYPP patch number 3049.
