Description

Updated cups packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

"Updated cups packages that fix multiple security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing
layer for UNIX(R) operating systems.

Two overflows were discovered in the HP-GL/2-to-PostScript filter. An
attacker could create a malicious HP-GL/2 file that could possibly
execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file is printed.
(CVE-2008-0053)

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the GIF decoding routines
used by CUPS image converting filters 'imagetops' and 'imagetoraster'.
An attacker could create a malicious GIF file that could possibly
execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed.
(CVE-2008-1373)

It was discovered that the patch used to address CVE-2004-0888 in CUPS
packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 did not completely
resolve the integer overflow in the 'pdftops' filter on 64-bit
platforms. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that could
possibly execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was
printed. (CVE-2008-1374)

All cups users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to resolve these issues."
