    cups-filters vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in cups-filters.
    
    Software Description:
    - cups-filters: OpenPrinting CUPS Filters
    
    Details:
    
    Sebastian Krahmer discovered that cups-browsed incorrectly filtered remote
    printer names and strings. A remote attacker could use this issue to
    possibly execute arbitrary commands. (CVE-2014-2707)
    
    Johannes Meixner discovered that cups-browsed ignored invalid BrowseAllow
    directives. This could cause it to accept browse packets from all hosts,
    contrary to intended configuration.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      cups-browsed                    1.0.52-0ubuntu1.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
