 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in cups:
 
 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).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
