tag_insight = "Michael Brooks discovered that ctorrent, a text-mode bittorrent client,
does not verify the length of file paths in torrent files.  An attacker
can exploit this via a crafted torrent that contains a long file path to
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user opening the file.


The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain ctorrent.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.4-dnh3.2-1+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.4-dnh3.2-1.1.


We recommend that you upgrade your ctorrent packages.";
