Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:204-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : cups
Date : November 12, 2007
Affected: 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research discovered a vulnerability in CUPS
that can be exploited by malicious individuals to execute arbitrary
code. This flaw is due to a boundary error when processing IPP
(Internet Printing Protocol) tags.

Update:

Due to incorrect build requirements/conflicts, the cups-config
in Mandriva Linux 2008.0 was displaying the full CFLAGS and libs
instead of just the libraries when 'cups-config --libs' was invoked.
This update corrects the cups-config behaviour.
