    description It was discovered that the SGI image filter in CUPS did not perform proper bounds checking. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted SGI image, an attacker could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3639) It was discovered that the texttops filter in CUPS did not properly validate page metrics. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted text file, an attacker could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3640) It was discovered that the HP-GL filter in CUPS did not properly check for invalid pen parameters. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted HP-GL or HP-GL/2 file, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with user privileges. In Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 LTS, attackers would be isolated by the AppArmor CUPS profile. (CVE-2008-3641) NOTE: The previous update for CUPS on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS did not have the the fix for CVE-2008-1722 applied. This update includes fixes for the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

All CUPS users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

    title Oracle Linux 3 / 4 / 5 : cups (ELSA-2008-0937)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2008-0937.NASL
    description Updated cups packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(R) operating systems. A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the SGI image format decoding routines used by the CUPS image converting filter 'imagetops'. An attacker could create a malicious SGI image file that could, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-3639) An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap buffer overflow was discovered in the Text-to-PostScript 'texttops' filter. An attacker could create a malicious text file that could, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-3640) An insufficient buffer bounds checking flaw was discovered in the HP-GL/2-to-PostScript 'hpgltops' filter. An attacker could create a malicious HP-GL/2 file that could, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-3641) Red Hat would like to thank regenrecht for reporting these issues. All CUPS users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

    description The release note of cups 1.3.9 reports : It contains the following fixes : - SECURITY: The HP-GL/2 filter did not range check pen numbers (STR #2911) - SECURITY: The SGI image file reader did not range check 16-bit run lengths (STR #2918) - SECURITY: The text filter did not range check cpi, lpi, or column values (STR #2919) Exploitation of this vulnerability results in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the affected service.

    description The previous CUPS security advisor, stated that it fixed CVE-2008-3640 for Scientific Linux 3, 4, and 5. It was discovered this flaw was not properly fixed on Scientific Linux 3, however. (CVE-2009-0577) These new packages contain a proper fix for CVE-2008-3640 on Scientific Linux 3. Scientific Linux 4 and 5 already contain the appropriate fix for this flaw and do not need to be updated.

    NASL id CUPS_1_3_9.NASL
    description According to its banner, the version of CUPS installed on the remote host is earlier than 1.3.9. Such versions are affected by several issues : - The HP-GL/2 filter does not adequately check the ranges on the pen width and pen color opcodes that allows an attacker to overwrite memory addresses with arbitrary data, which may result in execution of arbitrary code (STR #2911). - There is a heap-based buffer overflow in the SGI file format parsing module that can be triggered with malformed Run Length Encoded (RLE) data to execute arbitrary code (STR #2918). - There is an integer overflow vulnerability in the 'WriteProlog()' function in the 'texttops' application that can be triggered when calculating the page size used for storing PostScript data to execute arbitrary code (STR #2919).
