Vulnerability  : directory traversal
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-1799
Debian Bug     : 432007

It was discovered that ktorrent, a BitTorrent client for KDE, was vulnerable
to a directory traversal bug which potentially allowed remote users to
overwrite arbitrary files.

This updated advisory correctly increases the version number of the
fixed package such that it is installable upon the etch release of Debian.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
