    It was discovered that ktorrent, a BitTorrent client for KDE, was vulnerable
    to a directory traversal bug which potentially allowed remote users to
    overwrite arbitrary files.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    2.0.3+dfsg1-2etch1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), this package was not present.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was fixed in version
    2.2.1.dfsg.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ktorrent package.
