Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in CUPS:
regenrecht (VeriSign iDefense) discovered that the
cgiCompileSearch() function used in several CGI scripts in CUPS'
administration interface does not correctly calculate boundaries when
processing a user-provided regular expression, leading to a heap-based
buffer overflow (CVE-2008-0047).
Helge Blischke reported a
double free() vulnerability in the process_browse_data() function when
adding or removing remote shared printers (CVE-2008-0882).
Tomas Hoger (Red Hat) reported that the gif_read_lzw() function
uses the code_size value from GIF images without properly checking it,
leading to a buffer overflow (CVE-2008-1373).
input validation error was discovered in the HP-GL/2 filter
A local attacker could send specially crafted network packets or print
jobs and possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running CUPS (usually lp), or cause a Denial of Service. The
vulnerabilities are exploitable via the network when CUPS is sharing
There is no known workaround at this time.
