Version     : 0.12
Release     : 3.fc8
URL         : http://www.rasterbar.com/products/libtorrent/
Summary     : A C++ BitTorrent library aiming to be the best alternative
Description :
rb_libtorrent is a C++ library that aims to be a good alternative to all
the other BitTorrent implementations around. It is a library and not a full
featured client, although it comes with a few working example clients.

Its main goals are to be very efficient (in terms of CPU and memory usage) as
well as being very easy to use both as a user and developer.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Mon Jan 28 2008 Peter Gordon <peter thecodergeek com> - 0.12-3
- Add upstream patch (changeset 1968) to fix potential security vulnerability:
  malformed messages passed through the bdecode_recursive routine could cause
  a potential stack overflow.
