Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: foomatic-filters: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201203-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 06, 2012
Bug(s): #379559
ID: 201203-07

Synopsis

A vulnerability in foomatic-filters could result in the execution
of arbitrary code.


Background

The foomatic-filters package contains wrapper scripts which are designed
to be used with Foomatic.


Affected Packages

Package: net-print/foomatic-filters
Vulnerable: < 4.0.9
Unaffected: >= 4.0.9
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The foomatic-rip filter improperly handles command-line arguments,
including those issued by FoomaticRIPCommandLine fields in PPD files.


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PPD
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the system user "lp".


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All foomatic-filters users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=net-print/foomatic-filters-4.0.9"
