[USN-50-1] CUPS vulnerabilities

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-50-1           December 23, 2004
cupsys vulnerabilities
CAN-2004-1125, CAN-2004-2467, CAN-2004-1268, CAN-2004-1269,
CAN-2004-1270
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

cupsys
cupsys-client
libcupsimage2

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1.1.20final+cvs20040330-4ubuntu16.3. In general, a standard
system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

CAN-2004-1125:

  The recent USN-48-1 fixed a buffer overflow in xpdf. Since CUPS
  contains xpdf code to convert incoming PDF files to the PostScript
  format, this vulnerability applies to cups as well.

  In this case it could even lead to privilege escalation: if an
  attacker submitted a malicious PDF file for printing, he could be
  able to execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the
  CUPS server.

  Please note that the Ubuntu version of CUPS runs as a minimally
  privileged user 'cupsys' by default, so there is no possibility of
  root privilege escalation. The privileges of the 'cupsys' user are
  confined to modifying printer configurations, altering print jobs,
  and controlling printers.

CAN-2004-1267:

  Ariel Berkman discovered a buffer overflow in the ParseCommand()
  function of the HPGL input driver. If an attacker printed a
  malicious HPGL file, they could exploit this to execute arbitrary
  commands with the privileges of the CUPS server.

CAN-2004-1268, CAN-2004-1269, CAN-2004-1270:

  Bartlomiej Sieka discovered three flaws in lppasswd. These allowed
  users to corrupt the new password file by filling up the disk,
  sending certain signals, or closing the standard output and/or error
  streams.
