Package        : cupsys
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1125
Debian Bug     : 286988

An iDEFENSE security researcher discovered a buffer overflow in xpdf,
the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite.  Similar code is present in
the PDF processing part of CUPS.  A maliciously crafted PDF file could
exploit this problem, leading to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.14-5woody11.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.22-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your cupsys packages.


Upgrade Instructions
--------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
