Package        : cupsys
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0053 CVE-2008-1373 CVE-2008-1722
Debian Bug     : 476305

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Common Unix
Printing System (CUPS). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:


    Buffer overflows in the HP-GL input filter allowed to possibly run
    arbitrary code through crafted HP-GL files.


    Buffer overflow in the GIF filter allowed to possibly run arbitrary
    code through crafted GIF files.


    Integer overflows in the PNG filter allowed to possibly run arbitrary
    code through crafted PNG files.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.7-4etch4 of package cupsys.

For the testing (lenny) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems
have been fixed in version 1.3.7-2 of package cups.

We recommend that you upgrade your cupsys package.
