More information:

Miguel Onoro reported that qbittorrent, a bittorrent client with a Qt5 GUI user interface, allows command injection via shell metacharacters in the torrent name parameter or current tracker parameter, which could result in remote command execution via a crafted name within an RSS feed if qbittorrent is configured to run an external program on torrent completion.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 3.3.7-3+deb9u1.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in version 4.1.5-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your qbittorrent packages.
