Date 25 Mar 2008
Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
Double free vulnerability in the process_browse_data function in CUPS 1.3.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted packets to the cupsd port (631/udp), related to an unspecified manipulation of a remote printer.

Package        : cupsys
Vulnerability  : multiple
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0047 CVE-2008-0882
Debian Bug     : 472105 467653

Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in cupsys, the
Common Unix Printing System.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

Heap-based buffer overflow in CUPS, when printer sharing is enabled,
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted search

Double free vulnerability in the process_browse_data function in CUPS
1.3.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon
crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted packets to the
cupsd port (631/udp), related to an unspecified manipulation of a
remote printer.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.7-4etch3

We recommend that you upgrade your cupsys packages.
