Package        : cups
CVE ID         : CVE-2013-6474 CVE-2013-6475 CVE-2013-6476

Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product Security Team discovered multiple
vulnerabilities in the pdftoopvp CUPS filter, which could result in the
execution of aribitrary code if a malformed PDF file is processed.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.4-7+squeeze4.

For the stable distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid)
the filter is now part of the cups-filters source package.

We recommend that you upgrade your cups packages.
