Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated CUPS packages that fix multiple security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer
for UNIX(R) operating systems.

Several flaws were discovered in the way CUPS processes PDF files. An
attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause CUPS
to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3191,
CVE-2005-3192, and CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.

All users of CUPS should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.
