Insight

Insight

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(R) operating systems. A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the SGI image format decoding routines used by the CUPS image converting filter &quot imagetops&quot . An attacker could create a malicious SGI image file that could, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the &quot lp&quot user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-3639) An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap buffer overflow was discovered in the Text-to-PostScript &quot texttops&quot filter. An attacker could create a malicious text file that could, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the &quot lp&quot user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-3640) An insufficient buffer bounds checking flaw was discovered in the HP-GL/2-to-PostScript &quot hpgltops&quot filter. An attacker could create a malicious HP-GL/2 file that could, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the &quot lp&quot user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-3641) Red Hat would like to thank regenrecht for reporting these issues. All CUPS users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
