Detail

Product: OpenSolaris

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) as shipped with OpenSolaris is impacted by multiple security vulnerabilities affecting the "imagetops", "texttops" and "hpgltops" filters. These vulnerabilities may allow a local or remote unprivileged user to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the CUPS service (which usually runs as root).

These issues are described in the following documents:

Title: DSA-1656 cupsys -- several vulnerabilities
Description: Several local vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Common UNIX Printing System. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: It was discovered that insufficient bounds checking in the SGI image filter may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. It was discovered that an integer overflow in the Postscript conversion tool texttops may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. It was discovered that insufficient bounds checking in the HPGL filter may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
