Fedora 8 : rb_libtorrent-0.12-3.fc8 (2008-1198)

Description

A potential remote exploit was found in the bdecode_recursive routine that could trigger a stack overflow when passed malformed message data. This release adds a fix for this issue from the upstream subversion repository that limits the maximum recursive depth of this function.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
