=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated cups packages that fix multiple security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

3. Description:

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

Two overflows were discovered in the HP-GL/2-to-PostScript filter. An
attacker could create a malicious HP-GL/2 file that could possibly execute
arbitrary code as the "lp" user if the file is printed. (CVE-2008-0053)

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the GIF decoding routines used by
CUPS image converting filters "imagetops" and "imagetoraster". An attacker
could create a malicious GIF file that could possibly execute arbitrary
code as the "lp" user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-1373)

It was discovered that the patch used to address CVE-2004-0888 in CUPS
packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 did not completely resolve the
integer overflow in the "pdftops" filter on 64-bit platforms.  An attacker
could create a malicious PDF file that could possibly execute arbitrary
code as the "lp" user if the file was printed. (CVE-2008-1374)

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

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
