A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04 - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in CUPS.

Software Description: - cups: Common UNIX Printing System(tm)


Stephan Zeisberg discovered that the CUPS SNMP backend incorrectly handled encoded ASN.1 inputs. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause CUPS to crash by providing specially crafted network traffic. (CVE-2019-8696, CVE-2019-8675)

It was discovered that CUPS did not properly handle client disconnection events. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service or disclose memory from the CUPS server.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.04:
cups 2.2.10-4ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
cups 2.2.7-1ubuntu2.7

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
cups 2.1.3-4ubuntu0.10

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
