                       Red Hat Security Advisory
    
    Synopsis:          Updated CUPS packages fix security issue
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2005:049-01
    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-049.html
    Issue date:        2005-02-01
    Updated on:        2005-02-01
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    CVE Names:         CAN-2005-0064
    - ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1. Summary:
    
    Updated CUPS packages that fixes a security issue are now available.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    
    3. Problem description:
    
    The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for
    UNIX(R) operating systems.
    
    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.
    
    Red Hat believes that the Exec-Shield technology (enabled by default since
    Update 3) will block attempts to remotely exploit these buffer overflow
    vulnerabilities on x86 architectures.
    
    All users of cups should upgrade to these updated packages, which 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:
