    Package        : qbittorrent
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-13640
    Debian Bug     : 932539
    
    Miguel Onoro reported that qbittorrent, a bittorrent client with a Qt5
    GUI user interface, allows command injection via shell metacharacters in
    the torrent name parameter or current tracker parameter, which could
    result in remote command execution via a crafted name within an RSS feed
    if qbittorrent is configured to run an external program on torrent
    completion.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 3.3.7-3+deb9u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.5-1+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qbittorrent packages.
