Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA950] DSA-950-1 cupsys

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-950-1 cupsys

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf which are also present in CUPS, the Common UNIX
Printing System, and which can lead to a denial of service by crashing
the application or possibly to the execution of arbitrary code.
For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.1.14-5woody14.
CUPS doesn't use the xpdf source anymore since 1.1.22-7, when it switched
to using xpdf-utils for PDF processing.
We recommend that you upgrade your CUPS packages.
