[slackware-security]  cups (SSA:2008-312-01)

New cups packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, and -current to
fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3639
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3640
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3641


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Fri Nov  7 22:23:40 CST 2008
patches/packages/cups-1.3.9-i486-1_slack12.1.tgz:  Upgraded to cups-1.3.9.
  This update fixes three vulnerabilities in the SGI image format filter, the
  texttops filter, and the HP-GL and HP-GL/2 plotter format filter.  All three
  of these could result in a denial of service, and the plotter filter issue
  could possibly be used to execute code as the print spooler user.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3639

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
