An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
discovered in the Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) decoding routines
used by the CUPS image-converting filters, 'imagetops' and

could, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the
file was printed. (CVE-2009-0163)
After installing the update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted
