Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0192

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0192.

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

A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in a CUPS administration interface
CGI script. A local attacker able to connect to the IPP port (TCP port 631)
could send a malicious request causing the script to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code as the lp user. Please note: the default CUPS
configuration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 does not allow remote
connections to the IPP TCP port. (CVE-2008-0047)

Red Hat would like to thank regenrecht for reporting this issue.

This issue did not affect the versions of CUPS as shipped with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3 or 4.

Two overflows were discovered in the HP-GL/2-to-PostScript filter. An
attacker could create a malicious HP-GL/2 file that could possibly execute
arbitrary code as the lp user if the file is printed. (CVE-2008-0053)

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the GIF decoding routines used by
CUPS image converting filters imagetops and imagetoraster. An attacker
could create a malicious GIF file that could possibly execute arbitrary
code as the lp user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-1373)

All cups users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
