Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60944
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-606-1 (cupsys)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-606-1 (cupsys)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to cupsys
announced via advisory USN-606-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Thomas Pollet discovered that CUPS did not properly validate the size of
PNG images. A local attacker, and a remote attacker if printer sharing
is enabled, could send a crafted file and cause a denial of service or
possibly execute arbitrary code as the non-root user in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
and 7.04. In Ubuntu 7.10, attackers would be isolated by the AppArmor
CUPS profile. (CVE-2008-1722)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
cupsys 1.2.2-0ubuntu0.6.06.9

Ubuntu 7.04:
cupsys 1.2.8-0ubuntu8.4

Ubuntu 7.10:
cupsys 1.3.2-1ubuntu7.7

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
