An attacker being able to submit print jobs could exploit this flaw to crash texttopdf or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. This was discovered by Petr Sklenar of Red Hat. This is fixed in cups-filters 1.0.70. Patch: http://bzr.linuxfoundation.org/loggerhead/openprinting/cups-filters/revision/7363 Minor note on the side: The commit thanks me for the patch. The patch was created by Tim Waugh of Red Hat, I've merely forwarded it. Red Hat bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1235385 Thanks, -- Stefan Cornelius / Red Hat Product Security
