Detail

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2008-0053

Buffer overflows in the HP-GL input filter allowed to possibly run arbitrary code through crafted HP-GL files.

CVE-2008-1373

Buffer overflow in the GIF filter allowed to possibly run arbitrary code through crafted GIF files.

CVE-2008-1722

Integer overflows in the PNG filter allowed to possibly run arbitrary code through crafted PNG files.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.7-4etch4 of package cupsys.

For the testing (lenny) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.7-2 of package cups.

We recommend that you upgrade your cupsys package.
