Slackware New ktorrent packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and -current to fix security issues.
[slackware-security]  ktorrent (SSA:2007-093-02)

New ktorrent packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and -current to
fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1384
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1385


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/ktorrent-2.1.3-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to ktorrent-2.1.3.
  A directory traversal vulnerability in torrent.cpp in versions < 2.1.2 may
  allow remote attackers to overwrite the ktorrent user's files.  A bug in
  chunkcounter.cpp in versions < 2.1.2 allows remote attackers to crash
  ktorrent and cause heap corruption by the use of an invalid idx value.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1384
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1385
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
