Fedora 8 : deluge-0.5.8.3-1.fc8 (2008-1287)
High Nessus Plugin ID 30162
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionVersion 0.5.8.3 of the Deluge BitTorrent client contains a security fix for a remote exploit which could cause Deluge to crash. It also fixes some high CPU usage spikes, loading issues with the BlocklistImport plugin, and lock-ups when the tracker returns data that is not properly UTF8-encoded.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected deluge package.
