Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-09-06 09:38:39 UTC
CVE-2008-7166 (
  Buffer overflow in the web interface in BitTorrent 6.0.1 (build 7859)
  and earlier, and uTorrent 1.7.6 (build 7859) and earlier, allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and crash)
  via a crafted Range header.  NOTE: this is probably a different
  vulnerability than CVE-2008-0071 and CVE-2008-0364.
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-09-06 09:39:37 UTC
Filed as UNCO as it up to date only the Windows version has been proven vulnerable. No patch available atm.
Comment 2 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-03-16 02:43:35 UTC
We don't even have this version in the tree.
Comment 3 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2011-04-27 12:49:52 UTC
The original advisory says:
Versions:     BitTorrent <= 6.0.1 (build 7859)
Comment 4 Chris Reffett (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2013-09-03 02:23:39 UTC says that 4.4.0 is affected. @maintainers: I think it's necessary to bump to >6.0.1, no patch/workaround seems to be available. Still unclear whether this is windows-only.
