Stack-based buffer overflows in Transmission may allow for remote
execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Transmission is a cross-platform BitTorrent client.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package               /  Vulnerable  /                 Unaffected

Description
==========
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the tr_magnetParse() function
in libtransmission/magnet.c have been discovered.

Impact

A remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service or possibly execute
arbitrary code via a crafted magnet URL with a large number of tr or ws
links.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Transmission users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-p2p/transmission-1.92"
