    It was discovered that the web interface in CUPS, the Common UNIX
    Printing System, incorrectly validated permissions on rss files and
    directory index files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue
    to bypass file permissions and read arbitrary files, possibly leading
    to a privilege escalation.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.5.3-5+deb7u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.4-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cups packages.
