Please use CVE-2011-2697 for this.
According to SUSE bug, there are two different implementations of the
filter - one in perl and one in c - in different foomatic versions.
Both are affected by the same kind of problem, even though they don't
share vulnerable code. Is one CVE sufficient here, or is Mitre likely
to split and assign another when this is processed? Steven?
For posterity: there are 2 CVEs now - CVE-2011-2697 for perl-based
filter in foomatic 3.x, and CVE-2011-2964 for C-based filter in
