MDKSA-2003:001 - Updated CUPS packages fix multiple vulnerabilities

by Nikola Strahija on January 10th, 2003 iDefense reported several security problems in CUPS that can lead to local and remote root compromise.


Package name: cups
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:001
Date: January 9th, 2003

Affected versions: 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

iDefense reported several security problems in CUPS that can
lead to local and remote root compromise. An integer overflow
in the HTTP interface can be used to gain remote access with
CUPS privilege. A local file race condition can be used to
gain root privilege, although the previous bug must be exploited
first. An attacker can remotely add printers to the vulnerable
system. A remote DoS can be accomplished due to negative length
in the memcpy() call. An integer overflow in image handling code
can be used to gain higher privilege. An attacker can gain local
root privilege due to a buffer overflow of the 'options' buffer.
A design problem can be exploited to gain local root access,
however this needs an added printer (which can also be done, as
per a previously noted bug). Wrong handling of zero-width images
can be abused to gain higher privilege. Finally, a file descriptor
leak and DoS due to missing checks of return values of file/socket
operations.

MandrakeSoft recommends all users upgrade these CUPS packages
immediately.
