 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:146
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : cups
 Date    : October 11, 2011
 Affected: 2009.0, 2010.1, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in cups:
 
 The cupsDoAuthentication function in auth.c in the client in CUPS
 before 1.4.4, when HAVE_GSSAPI is omitted, does not properly handle a
 demand for authorization, which allows remote CUPS servers to cause
 a denial of service (infinite loop) via HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED responses
 (CVE-2010-2432).
 
 The LZW decompressor in the LWZReadByte function in giftoppm.c in
 the David Koblas GIF decoder in PBMPLUS, as used in the gif_read_lzw
 function in filter/image-gif.c in CUPS before 1.4.7, the LZWReadByte
 function in plug-ins/common/file-gif-load.c in GIMP 2.6.11 and earlier,
 the LZWReadByte function in img/gifread.c in XPCE in SWI-Prolog 5.10.4
 and earlier, and other products, does not properly handle code words
 that are absent from the decompression table when encountered, which
 allows remote attackers to trigger an infinite loop or a heap-based
 buffer overflow, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via a crafted
 compressed stream, a related issue to CVE-2006-1168 and CVE-2011-2895
 (CVE-2011-2896).
 
 The gif_read_lzw function in filter/image-gif.c in CUPS 1.4.8 and
 earlier does not properly handle the first code word in an LZW stream,
 which allows remote attackers to trigger a heap-based buffer overflow,
 and possibly execute arbitrary code, via a crafted stream, a different
 vulnerability than CVE-2011-2896 (CVE-2011-3170).
 
 Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance
 Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
