    Debian Bug     : 778387
    
    Peter De Wachter discovered that CUPS, the Common UNIX Printing
    System, did not correctly parse compressed raster files. By submitting
    a specially crafted raster file, a remote attacker could use this
    vulnerability to trigger a buffer overflow.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.3-5+deb7u5.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.7.5-11.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cups packages.
