CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : cups
SUMMARY   : Buffer Overflow
DATE      : 2002-04-03 10:57:00
ID        : CLA-2002:471
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 6.0, 7.0

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) is an open-source, freely
 available and cross-platform printing solution for UNIX
 environments.
 
 The CUPS authors found two buffer overflows in the IPP code. These
 buffer overflows potentially could be exploited by a remote attacker
 whose IP address is allowed to access the CUPS server, allowing
 him/her to execute arbitrary code in that server.
 
 This vulnerability[1] affects[2] all versions of CUPS prior to 1.1.4.


SOLUTION
 All users should do the upgrade. Please note that the printer daemon
 must be manually restarted after the upgrade. This can be done with
 the command shown below (executed as root):
 
 # service cups restart
