SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA buffer overflow in the SGI image format decoding routines used by the CUPS image converting filter imagetops was discovered. An attacker could create malicious SGI image files that could possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was printed (CVE-2008-3639).
An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap buffer overflow was found in the Text-to-PostScript texttops filter. An attacker could create a malicious text file that could possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was printed (CVE-2008-3640).
Finally, an insufficient buffer bounds checking flaw was found in the HP-GL/2-to-PostScript hpgltops filter. An attacker could create a malicious HP-GL/2 file that could possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was printed (CVE-2008-3641).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue; for Mandriva Linux 2009.0 the latest CUPS version (1.3.9) is provided that corrects these issues and also provides other bug fixes.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
