VuXML ID 83d7d149-b965-11de-a515-0022156e8794
Discovery 2009-10-15

Securityfocus reports:

cTorrent and dTorrent are prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because the software fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

Successful exploits allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of a vulnerable application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.
