------- Original comment by Mark J. Cox (Security Response Team) on 2004.10.12
CUPS contains a stripped down version of xpdf. Recent issues have
been found in xpdf 2 that can result in integer overflows causing bad
memory allocation or out of bounds writes. It's not expected these
can cause arbitrary code execution, more likely to be DoS crashers.
