Description

Package : cups Version : 1.4.4-7+squeeze7 CVE ID : CVE-2014-9679 Debian Bug : #778387

Peter De Wachter discovered that CUPS, the Common UNIX Printing System, did not correctly parse compressed raster files. By submitting a specially crafted raster file, a remote attacker could use this vulnerability to trigger a buffer overflow.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.4-7+squeeze7.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.3-5+deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your cups packages.
