Description Charles Kerr 2009-05-11 21:42:37 EDT
Fedora's version of Transmission should be updated to the new release, which closes a potential CSRF security hole for users who access Transmission via its Web Client.

1.61 is the latest release, and has the fix.

1.53 -- a new maintenance release of the 1.5x series -- also contains the fix.

Both versions were released on May 11 2009.

This is public already via announcement on the upstream page:

Upstream changeset seem to be:

Removing bug visibility restriction.  No need to check 'Security Sensitive' for issues that are public already.
Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2009-05-22 02:19:02 EDT
Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in Transmission 1.5
before 1.53 and 1.6 before 1.61 allows remote attackers to hijack the
authentication of unspecified victims via unknown vectors.
