[DSA232] DSA-232-1 cupsys

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-232-1 cupsys

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the Common Unix Printing
System (CUPS). Several of these issues represent the potential for a
remote compromise or denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Even though we tried very hard to fix all problems in the packages for
potato as well, the packages may still contain other security related
problems. Hence, we advise users of potato systems using CUPS to
upgrade to woody soon.
For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.1.14-4.3.
For the old stable distribution (potato), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.0.4-12.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.1.18-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your CUPS packages immediately.
