lpr Update for Debian
Posted on: 03/24/2003 11:24 PM

Another security update for Debian GNU/Linux has been released:

DSA-267-1 lpr -- buffer overflow

A buffer overflow has been discovered in lpr, a BSD lpr/lpd line printer spooling system. This problem can be exploited by a local user to gain root privileges, even if the printer system is set up properly.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 2000.05.07-4.3.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed in version 0.48-1.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 2000.05.07-4.20.

We recommend that you upgrade your lpr package immediately.
