Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 01, 2007
Bug(s): #170303
ID: 200705-01

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Ktorrent allowing for the
remote execution of arbitrary code and a Denial of Service.


Background


Ktorrent is a Bittorrent client for KDE.


Affected Packages

Package: net-p2p/ktorrent
Vulnerable: < 2.1.3
Unaffected: >= 2.1.3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Bryan Burns of Juniper Networks discovered a vulnerability in
chunkcounter.cpp when processing large or negative idx values, and a
directory traversal vulnerability in torrent.cpp.


Impact


A remote attacker could entice a user to download a specially crafted
torrent file, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running Ktorrent.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Ktorrent users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-p2p/ktorrent-2.1.3"
