    1. Summary:
    
    Updated CUPS packages that fix several security issues are now available.
    
    This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat
    Security Response Team.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    
    3. Problem description:
    
    The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for
    UNIX(R) operating systems.
    
    During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a number of
    integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of Xpdf, which also
    affects CUPS due to a shared codebase. An attacker could construct a
    carefully crafted PDF file that could cause CUPS to crash or possibly
    execute arbitrary code when opened.  This issue was assigned the name
    CAN-2004-0888 by The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    (cve.mitre.org). Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 contained a fix for this issue,
    but it was found to be incomplete and left 64-bit architectures vulnerable.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
    assigned the name CAN-2005-0206 to this issue.
    
    A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Gfx::doImage function of Xpdf which
    also affects the CUPS pdftops filter due to a shared codebase.  An attacker
    who has the ability to send a malicious PDF file to a printer could
    possibly execute arbitrary code as the "lp" user. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
    CAN-2004-1125 to this issue.
    
    A buffer overflow flaw was found in the ParseCommand function in the
    hpgltops program. An attacker who has the ability to send a malicious HPGL
    file to a printer could possibly execute arbitrary code as the "lp" user.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
    assigned the name CAN-2004-1267 to this issue.
    
    A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Decrypt::makeFileKey2 function of
    Xpdf which also affects the CUPS pdftops filter due to a shared codebase.
    An attacker who has the ability to send a malicious PDF file to a printer
    could possibly execute arbitrary code as the "lp" user. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
    CAN-2005-0064 to this issue.
    
    The lppasswd utility was found to ignore write errors when modifying the
    CUPS passwd file. A local user who is able to fill the associated file
    system could corrupt the CUPS password file or prevent future uses of
    lppasswd. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
    has assigned the names CAN-2004-1268 and CAN-2004-1269 to these issues.
    
    The lppasswd utility was found to not verify that the passwd.new file is
    different from STDERR, which could allow local users to control output to
    passwd.new via certain user input that triggers an error message. The
    Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
    the name CAN-2004-1270 to this issue.
    
    All users of cups should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
    backported patches to resolve these issues.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
    errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
    Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
    Update Agent, use the following command:
    
        up2date
    
    For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
    following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
    guide specific to your system:

    5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
    
    144191 - CAN-2004-1267 Bernstein cups issues (CAN-2004-1268 CAN-2004-1269 CAN-2004-1270)
    144194 - CAN-2004-1125 xpdf buffer overflow
    145088 - CAN-2005-0064 xpdf buffer overflow
