The intention in the fix was to dissalow symlinks. With the fix applied fo CVE-2014-3537 this is still possible in some cases (where language is null), see https://cups.org/str.php?L4455 Additionally Michael Sweet wrote: > Yes, it looks like this needs to be an lstat as well, and we should > probably add similar protections to the directory index files (which > are also using stat). Could a CVE be assigned to identify this? (Question: one CVE should be enough for the additional fix for all the missing remaining lstat?). Regards, Salvatore
