Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Stefan Cornelius from Red Hat reports :

A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in the way the texttopdf
utility of cups-filters processed print jobs with a specially crafted
line size. An attacker being able to submit print jobs could exploit
this flaw to crash texttopdf or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

Till Kamppeter reports :

texttopdf: Fixed buffer overflow on size allocation of texttopdf when
working with extremely small line sizes, which causes the size
calculation to result in 0 (CVE-2015-3258, thanks to Stefan Cornelius
from Red Hat for the patch).
