Description

Two problems have been found in KTorrent:

KTorrent does not properly sanitize file names to filter out ".." components, so it's possible for an attacker to create a malicious torrent in order to overwrite arbitrary files within the filesystem. Messages with invalid chunk indexes aren't rejected.
