[slackware-security]  cups (SSA:2009-116-01)

New cups packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 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-2009-0146
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0147
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0163
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0164
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0166


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/cups-1.3.10-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to cups-1.3.10.
  This fixes several security issues, including an integer overflow in the TIFF
  decoder, a failure to properly verify the Host HTTP header, and several
  problems with PDF handling (the new CUPS uses a wrapper rather than embedded
  code taken from xpdf).  These issues could result in a denial of service or
  the execution of arbitrary code.
  For more information, see:

    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0163

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

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.
