    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0144
    
    The correction for CAN-2003-0144 for the old stable distribution
    (potato) was a little bit too strict apparently and this update
    corrects this.  For completeness here is the advisory text:
    
       A buffer overflow has been discovered in lpr, a BSD lpr/lpd line
       printer spooling system.  This problem can be exploited by a local
       user to gain root privileges, even if the printer system is set up
       properly.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2000.05.07-4.3.
    
    For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
    in version 0.48-1.2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2000.05.07-4.20.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lpr package immediately.
