Debian DSA-950-1 : cupsys - buffer overflows

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 22816

Synopsis

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

Description

'infamous41md' and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer overflows in xpdf which are also present in CUPS, the Common UNIX Printing System, and which can lead to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade the CUPS packages.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.14-5woody14.

CUPS doesn't use the xpdf source anymore since 1.1.22-7, when it switched to using xpdf-utils for PDF processing.
