Package        : ctorrent
Vulnerability  : stack-based buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug     : 530255
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-1759


Michael Brooks discovered that ctorrent, a text-mode bittorrent client,
does not verify the length of file paths in torrent files.  An attacker
can exploit this via a crafted torrent that contains a long file path to
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user opening the file.


The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain ctorrent.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.4-dnh3.2-1+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.4-dnh3.2-1.1.


We recommend that you upgrade your ctorrent packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

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
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
