CVE-2008-0047

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in the cgiCompileSearch function in CUPS 1.3.5, and other versions including the version bundled with Apple Mac OS X 10.5.2, when printer sharing is enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted search expressions.
