Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A heap-based buffer overflow in CUPS 1.2.x and later was discovered by regenrecht of VeriSign iDenfense that could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code via a crafted CGI search expression (CVE-2008-0047).

A validation error in the Hp-GL/2 filter was also discovered (CVE-2008-0053).

Finally, a vulnerability in how CUPS handled GIF files was found by Tomas Hoger of Red Hat, similar to previous issues corrected in PHP, gd, tk, netpbm, and SDL_image (CVE-2008-1373).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
