Debian DSA-1530-1 : cupsys - Several vulnerabilities
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 31663
The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in cupsys, the Common Unix Printing System. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2008-0047 Heap-based buffer overflow in CUPS, when printer sharing is enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted search expressions. - CVE-2008-0882 Double free vulnerability in the process_browse_data function in CUPS 1.3.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly the execution of arbitrary code via crafted packets to the cupsd port (631/udp), related to an unspecified manipulation of a remote printer.
Upgrade the cupsys packages. For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.7-4etch3.
