<description>
<p>
The web interface plugin does not restrict access to the torrent upload
functionality (CVE-2008-5905) and does not sanitize request parameters
properly (CVE-2008-5906) .
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
A remote attacker could send specially crafted parameters to the web
interface that would allow for arbitrary torrent uploads and remote
code execution with the privileges of the KTorrent process.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
Disabling the web interface plugin will prevent exploitation of both
issues. Click "Plugins" in the configuration menu and uncheck the
checkbox left of "WebInterface", then apply the changes.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All KTorrent users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-p2p/ktorrent-2.2.8&quot;</code>
</resolution>
