RedHat Linux Updated CUPS packages that fixes a security issue are now available.
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated CUPS packages fix security issue
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2005:049-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-049.html
Issue date:        2005-02-01
Updated on:        2005-02-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names:         CAN-2005-0064
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated CUPS packages that fixes a security issue are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for
UNIX(R) operating systems.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Decrypt::makeFileKey2 function of
Xpdf which also affects the CUPS pdftops filter due to a shared codebase.
An attacker who has the ability to send a malicious PDF file to a printer
could possibly execute arbitrary code as the "lp" user. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2005-0064 to this issue.

Red Hat believes that the Exec-Shield technology (enabled by default since
Update 3) will block attempts to remotely exploit these buffer overflow
vulnerabilities on x86 architectures.

All users of cups should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

145102 - CAN-2005-0064 xpdf buffer overflow
