OK, lets start actually using this list... below is an advisory from
secunia detailing a cups DoS.

Steve, could we get a CVE assigned?

Attached is the patch upstream used to fix it (against 1.1.23, but it is
the same for other versions, just with a different offset).

| DESCRIPTION:
| A vulnerability has been discovered in CUPS, which can be exploited

| potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
|
| The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the
| "process_browse_data()" function when adding printers and classes.
| This can be exploited to free the same buffer twice by sending
| specially crafted browser packets to the UDP port on which cupsd is
| listening (by default port 631/UDP).
|
| Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
