Package        : ktorrent
Vulnerability  : directory traversal
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-1799
Debian Bug     : 432007

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.

This updated advisory correctly increases the version number of the
fixed package such that it is installable upon the etch release of Debian.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
2.0.3+dfsg1-2.2etch1.

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.

- --------------------

        will fetch the file for you

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
