    It was discovered that the foomatic-filters, a support package for
    setting up printers, allowed authenticated users to submit crafted
    print jobs which would execute shell commands on the print servers.
    
    CVE-2011-2697 was assigned to the vulnerability in the Perl
    implementation included in lenny, and CVE-2011-2964 to the
    vulnerability affecting the C reimplementation part of squeeze.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.2-20080211-3.2+lenny1.
