Fedora 9 : rb_libtorrent-0.12.1-2.fc9 (2009-6619)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 39544
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis 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. In addition to this, asio-devel has been added to the dependencies for the rb_libtorrent-devel package - a fix already applied to the Fedora 10, 11, and Development ('Rawhide') packages.
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 rb_libtorrent package.
