Sebastian Krahmer discovered that cups-browsed incorrectly filtered
remote printer names and strings. A remote attacker could use this
issue to possibly execute arbitrary commands. (CVE-2014-2707)
Johannes Meixner discovered that cups-browsed ignored invalid
BrowseAllow directives. This could cause it to accept browse packets
from all hosts, contrary to intended configuration.
