|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: CUPS: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200812-11)
Date: December 10, 2008
Bug(s): #238976, #249727
Several remotely exploitable bugs have been found in CUPS, which allow remote execution of arbitrary code.
CUPS is the Common Unix Printing System.
Vulnerable: < 1.3.9-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.3.9-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Several buffer overflows were found in:
- The read_rle16 function in imagetops (CVE-2008-3639, found by regenrecht, reported via ZDI)
- The WriteProlog function in texttops (CVE-2008-3640, found by regenrecht, reported via ZDI)
- The Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language (HPGL) filter (CVE-2008-3641, found by regenrecht, reported via iDefense)
- The _cupsImageReadPNG function (CVE-2008-5286, reported by iljavs)
A remote attacker could send specially crafted input to a vulnerable server, resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the server.
None this time.
All CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version.
