    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.
