The remote printer service is prone to a denial of service attack.
According to its banner, the version of CUPS installed on the remote
host contains a double free error in its 'process_browse_data'
function when deleting the mime type entry for a remote printer that
is being polled. An attacker may be able to leverage this issue to
crash the affected service by deleting a printer under his control and
then recreating it as a class.
Third-party researchers suggest this vulnerability can be used to
execute arbitrary code.
