Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ktorrent (MDKSA-2007:095)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 37741


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A directory traversal vulnerability was found in KTorrent prior to 2.1.2, due to an incomplete fix for a prior directory traversal vulnerability that was corrected in version 2.1.2. Previously, KTorrent would only check for the string .., which could permit strings such as ../.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected ktorrent, lib64ktorrent2.1.2 and / or libktorrent2.1.2 packages.
