Description

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way CUPS handled subscriptions for printing job completion notifications. A local user could use this flaw to crash the CUPS daemon by submitting a large number of printing jobs requiring mail notification on completion, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2008-5183)

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap buffer overflow, was discovered in the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) decoding routines used by the CUPS image-converting filters, 'imagetops' and 'imagetoraster'. An attacker could create a malicious PNG file that could, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-5286)
