|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: LimeWire: Disclosure of sensitive information (GLSA 200503-37)
Date: March 31, 2005
Two vulnerabilities in LimeWire can be exploited to disclose sensitive information.
LimeWire is a Java peer-to-peer client compatible with the Gnutella file-sharing protocol.
Vulnerable: < 4.8.1
Unaffected: >= 4.8.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Two input validation errors were found in the handling of Gnutella GET requests (CAN-2005-0788) and magnet requests (CAN-2005-0789).
A remote attacker can craft a specific Gnutella GET request or use directory traversal on magnet requests to read arbitrary files on the system with the rights of the user running LimeWire.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All LimeWire users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-p2p/limewire-4.8.1"
Secunia Advisory SA14555
