The transmission-daemon package in wheezy crashes regularly. According 
to upstream this is a remote security hole (at least a remote DoS, but 
most probably there is a way to take control of the process).


Apparently there is no CVE assigned. The bug is fixed upstream and I’m 
attaching the patch. I’m currently testing a patched package, and will 
report whether the fix is sufficient.

Could a CVE be assigned for this?

Thanks in advance,
