Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in Deluge might allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Deluge is a BitTorrent client.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-p2p/deluge               < 1.3.14                  >= 1.3.14

Description
===========

A CSRF vulnerability was discovered in the web UI of Deluge.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user currently logged in into Deluge
web UI to visit a malicious web page which uses forged requests to make
Deluge download and install a Deluge plug-in provided by the attacker.
The plug-in can then execute arbitrary code as the user running Deluge.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Deluge users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-p2p/deluge-1.3.14"
