The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201703-06 (Deluge: Remote execution of arbitrary code)

A CSRF vulnerability was discovered in the web UI of Deluge.
Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user currently logged in into Deluge web UI to visit a malicious web page which uses forged requests to make Deluge download and install a Deluge plug-in provided by the attacker.
The plug-in can then execute arbitrary code as the user running Deluge.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All Deluge users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-p2p/deluge-1.3.14'
