    Kees Cook discovered that the hpssd tool of the HP Linux Printing and
    Imaging System (HPLIP) performs insufficient input sanitising of shell
    meta characters, which may result in local privilege escalation to
    the hplip user.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.10-4.3.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.10-3etch1.
