Description Ville Skyttä 2007-04-03 11:05:00 UTC

"Directory traversal vulnerability in torrent.cpp in KTorrent before 2.1.3 only
checks for the ".." string, which allows remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary
files via modified ".." sequences in a torrent filename, as demonstrated by
"../" sequences, due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-1384."

FC5, FC6, devel have 2.1.2 at the moment.
