Insight

Insight

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for UNIX operating systems. An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap buffer overflow was discovered in the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) decoding routines used by the CUPS image converting filters &quot imagetops&quot and &quot imagetoraster&quot . An attacker could create a malicious PNG file that could possibly execute arbitrary code as the &quot lp&quot user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-1722) All CUPS users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patch to resolve this issue.
