Kevin Walsh has reported two vulnerabilities in LimeWire, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
1) An input validation error in the HTTP handling can be exploited to disclose the content of arbitrary files via a specially crafted request.
The vulnerability has been reported in versions 4.1.2 through 4.5.6.
2) An input validation error in the handling of "magnet" requests can be exploited to disclose the content of arbitrary files via directory traversal attacks.
The vulnerability has been reported in versions 3.9.6 through 4.6.0.
Update to version 4.8 or later.

This one is ready for GLSA vote. I tend to vote NO.
This can be used remotely to leak the contents of any file, I vote YES.
