GLSA-201311-11 : CTorrent: User-assisted arbitrary code execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 70995
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201311-11 (CTorrent: User-assisted arbitrary code execution)
CTorrent contains a stack-based buffer overflow in the btFiles::BuildFromMI function in trunk/btfiles.cpp.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted torrent file using CTorrent, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll CTorrent users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-p2p/ctorrent-3.3.2-r1'
