Detail

Updated cups-filters packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Florian Weimer discovered that cups-filters incorrectly handled memory in the urftopdf filter. An attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the lp user (CVE-2013-6473).

Florian Weimer discovered that cups-filters incorrectly handled memory in the pdftoopvp filter. An attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the lp user (CVE-2013-6474, CVE-2013-6475).

Florian Weimer discovered that cups-filters did not restrict driver directories in in the pdftoopvp filter. An attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the lp user (CVE-2013-6476).

Sebastian Krahmer discovered it was possible to use malicious broadcast packets to execute arbitrary commands on a server running the cups-browsed daemon (CVE-2014-2707).

In cups-filters before 1.0.53, out-of-bounds accesses in the process_browse_data function when reading the packet variable could leading to a crash, thus resulting in a denial of service (CVE-2014-4337).

In cups-filters before 1.0.53, if there was only a single BrowseAllow line in cups-browsed.conf and its host specification was invalid, this was interpreted as if no BrowseAllow line had been specified, which resulted in it accepting browse packets from all hosts (CVE-2014-4338).

The CVE-2014-2707 issue with malicious broadcast packets, which had been fixed in Mageia Bug 13216 (MGASA-2014-0181), had not been completely fixed by that update. A more complete fix was implemented in cups-filters 1.0.53 (CVE-2014-4336).

Note that only systems that have enabled the affected feature by using the CreateIPPPrinterQueues configuration directive in /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf were affected by the CVE-2014-2707 / CVE-2014-4336 issue.

Title: RHSA-2014:1795 -- cups-filters security update (Moderate)
Description: The cups-filters package contains backends, filters, and other software that was once part of the core CUPS distribution but is now maintained independently. An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way the process_browse_data() function of cups-browsed handled certain browse packets. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted browse packet that, when processed by cups-browsed, would crash the cups-browsed daemon. (CVE-2014-4337) A flaw was found in the way the cups-browsed daemon interpreted the "BrowseAllow" directive in the cups-browsed.conf file. An attacker able to add a malformed "BrowseAllow" directive to the cups-browsed.conf file could use this flaw to bypass intended access restrictions. (CVE-2014-4338) All cups-filters users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing this update, the cups-browsed daemon will be restarted automatically.
