Package : rlpr
Vulnerability : several
Problem-Type : local, remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CAN-2004-0393 CAN-2004-0454

jaguar@felinemenace.org discovered a format string vulnerability in rlpr, a utility for lpd printing without using /etc/printcap. While investigating this vulnerability, a buffer overflow was also discovered in related code. By exploiting one of these vulnerabilities, a local or remote user could potentially cause arbitrary code to be executed with the privileges of 1) the rlprd process (remote), or 2) root (local).

CAN-2004-0393: format string vulnerability via syslog(3) in msg() function in rlpr

CAN-2004-0454: buffer overflow in msg() function in rlpr

For the current stable distribution (woody), this problem has been fixed in version 2.02-7woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your rlpr package.
