<p>CTorrent is a BitTorrent client implemented in C++ to be lightweight and
<p>CTorrent contains a stack-based buffer overflow in the
btFiles::BuildFromMI function in trunk/btfiles.cpp.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
torrent file using CTorrent, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All CTorrent users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-p2p/ctorrent-3.3.2-r1"
