----------------------------------------------------------------------
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated CUPS packages fix security issue
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:049-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-049.html
Issue date: 2005-02-01
Updated on: 2005-02-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0064
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated CUPS packages that fixes a security issue are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(R) operating systems.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Decrypt::makeFileKey2 function of Xpdf which also affects the CUPS pdftops filter due to a shared codebase. An attacker who has the ability to send a malicious PDF file to a printer could possibly execute arbitrary code as the "lp" user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0064 to this issue.

Red Hat believes that the Exec-Shield technology (enabled by default since Update 3) will block attempts to remotely exploit these buffer overflow vulnerabilities on x86 architectures.

All users of cups should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system:
