Scientific Linux Security Update : cups on SL4.x, SL5.x i386/x86_64

high Nessus Plugin ID 60568
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2009-0147, CVE-2009-1179)

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2009-0146, CVE-2009-1182)

Multiple flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder that could lead to the freeing of arbitrary memory. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed.
(CVE-2009-0166, CVE-2009-1180)

Multiple input validation flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2009-0800)

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was discovered in the Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) decoding routines used by the CUPS image-converting filters, 'imagetops' and 'imagetoraster'. An attacker could create a malicious TIFF file that could, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2009-0163)

Multiple denial of service flaws were found in the CUPS JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause CUPS to crash when printed. (CVE-2009-0799, CVE-2009-1181, CVE-2009-1183)

After installing the update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted automatically.
