    Several security issues were fixed in cups-filters.
    Software Description:
    - cups-filters: OpenPrinting CUPS Filters
    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.

    package versions:
