Enhanced CTorrent and DTorrent btFiles::BuildFromMI() buffer overflow
|ctorrent-btfiles-bo (49959)||High Risk|
Enhanced CTorrent and DTorrent are vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the btFiles::BuildFromMI() function. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted torrent file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Apply the appropriate patch for your system. See References.
