Fedora 9 : ktorrent-3.1.4-1.fc9 (2008-9167)

High Nessus Plugin ID 34494


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Another bugfix release for the 3.1 series is out. This fixes several bugs : * A crash caused by a SIGBUS, when diskspace preallocation is disabled * High CPU usage when DNS lookups fail in the UDP tracker code * Several security issues in the webinterface plugin

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.


Update the affected ktorrent package.
