    Dan Rosenberg discovered that Transmission, a lightwight client for
    the Bittorrent filesharing protocol performs insufficient sanitising
    of file names specified in .torrent files. This could lead to the
    overwrite of local files with the privileges of the user running
    Transmission if the user is tricked into opening a malicious torrent
    file.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.22-1+lenny2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.77-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your transmission packages.
