Description

It was discovered that the SGI image filter in CUPS did not perform proper bounds checking. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted SGI image, an attacker could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3639)

It was discovered that the texttops filter in CUPS did not properly validate page metrics. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted text file, an attacker could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3640)

It was discovered that the HP-GL filter in CUPS did not properly check for invalid pen parameters. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted HP-GL or HP-GL/2 file, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with user privileges. In Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 LTS, attackers would be isolated by the AppArmor CUPS profile. (CVE-2008-3641)

NOTE: The previous update for CUPS on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS did not have the the fix for CVE-2008-1722 applied. This update includes fixes for the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.
