The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Gentoo security team summarizes :
The following issues were reported in CUPS :
- iDefense reported an integer overflow in the _cupsImageReadTIFF()
function in the 'imagetops' filter, leading to a heap-based buffer
- Aaron Siegel of Apple Product Security reported that the CUPS web
interface does not verify the content of the 'Host' HTTP header
- Braden Thomas and Drew Yao of Apple Product Security reported that
CUPS is vulnerable to CVE-2009-0146, CVE-2009-0147 and CVE-2009-0166,
found earlier in xpdf and poppler.
A remote attacker might send or entice a user to send a specially
crafted print job to CUPS, possibly resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the configured CUPS user -- by
default this is 'lp', or a Denial of Service. Furthermore, the web
interface could be used to conduct DNS rebinding attacks.
