Scientific Linux Security Update : cups on SL4.x, SL5.x i386/x86_64

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the
file was printed. (CVE-2009-0147, CVE-2009-1179)

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the
file was printed. (CVE-2009-0146, CVE-2009-1182)

Multiple flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder that could lead to
the freeing of arbitrary memory. An attacker could create a malicious
PDF file that would cause CUPS to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed.
(CVE-2009-0166, CVE-2009-1180)

Multiple input validation flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the
file was printed. (CVE-2009-0800)

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
'imagetoraster'. An attacker could create a malicious TIFF file that
could, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the
file was printed. (CVE-2009-0163)

Multiple denial of service flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to
crash when printed. (CVE-2009-0799, CVE-2009-1181, CVE-2009-1183)

After installing the update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted
automatically.
