Package : transmission CVE ID : CVE-2014-4909

Ben Hawkes discovered that incorrect handling of peer messages in the Transmission bittorrent client could result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your transmission packages.
