Fedora 11 : rb_libtorrent-0.14.3-2.fc11 (2009-6502)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 39542


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This release adds an upstream patch to fix a directory traversal vulnerability which would allow a remote attacker to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a '..' (dot dot) and partial relative pathname in a specially crafted torrent.

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 rb_libtorrent package.
