[slackware-security]  CUPS DoS vulnerability fixed (SSA:2003-149-01)

Upgraded CUPS packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0,
and -current to fix a denial of service attack vulnerability.


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.0 ChangeLog:

Thu May 29 00:52:54 PDT 2003
patches/packages/cups-1.1.19-i386-1.tgz:  Upgraded to cups-1.1.19.
  A denial of service problem that allowed a CUPS client to hang the CUPS
  server is now fixed in CUPS 1.1.19.  Note that CUPS is not installed by
