    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.
