                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           cups
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:104
 Date:                   November 5th, 2003

 Affected versions:	 9.0, Corporate Server 2.1

 Problem Description:

 A bug in versions of CUPS prior to 1.1.19 was reported by Paul
 Mitcheson in the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) implementation
 would result in CUPS going into a busy loop, which could result in
 a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.  To be able to exploit this
 problem, an attacker would need to be able to make a TCP connection
 to the IPP port (port 631 by default).
 The provided packages have been patched to correct this problem.
