Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0206 :

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.
