Updated deluge packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 31 Mar 2017
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 5


Updated deluge package fixes a CSRF (Cross-site request forgery)
vulnerability using upstream patch. Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is
an attack that forces an end user to execute unwanted actions on a web
application in which they're currently authenticated. CSRF attacks
specifically target state-changing requests, not theft of data, since the
attacker has no way to see the response to the forged request.[*]
