--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-6682

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : deluge
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 0.5.9.3
Release     : 2.fc9
URL         : http://deluge-torrent.org/
Summary     : A GTK+ BitTorrent client with support for DHT, UPnP, and PEX
Description :
Deluge is a new BitTorrent client, created using Python and GTK+. It is
intended to bring a native, full-featured client to Linux GTK+ desktop
environments such as GNOME and XFCE. It supports features such as DHT
(Distributed Hash Tables), PEX (ĀµTorrent-compatible Peer Exchange), and UPnP
(Universal Plug-n-Play) that allow one to more easily share BitTorrent data
even from behind a router with virtually zero configuration of port-forwarding.

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

This release adds a backported upstream patch to fix a directory traversal
vulnerability in the included copy of libtorrent which would allow a remote
attacker to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a ".." (dot dot) and partial
relative pathname in a specially-crafted torrent.
