Emmanuel Bouillon discovered that CUPS did not properly handle certain Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. In the default installation in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and later, attackers would be isolated by the CUPS AppArmor profile.
