Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61792
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-656-1 (cupsys)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-656-1 (cupsys)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to cupsys
announced via advisory USN-656-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

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

Details follow:

It was discovered that the SGI image filter in CUPS did not perform
proper bounds checking. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted SGI image, an attacker could cause a denial
of service. (CVE-2008-3639)

It was discovered that the texttops filter in CUPS did not properly
validate page metrics. If a user or automated system were tricked into
opening a crafted text file, an attacker could cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2008-3640)

It was discovered that the HP-GL filter in CUPS did not properly check
for invalid pen parameters. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted HP-GL or HP-GL/2 file, a remote attacker could
cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with user
privileges. In Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 LTS, attackers would be isolated by
the AppArmor CUPS profile. (CVE-2008-3641)

NOTE: The previous update for CUPS on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS did not have the
the fix for CVE-2008-1722 applied. This update includes fixes for the
problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
cupsys 1.2.2-0ubuntu0.6.06.11

Ubuntu 7.04:
cupsys 1.2.8-0ubuntu8.6

Ubuntu 7.10:
cupsys 1.3.2-1ubuntu7.8

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
cupsys 1.3.7-1ubuntu3.1

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