Comment 3 Jan Lieskovsky 2008-12-01 13:03:13 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-5183 to
the following vulnerability:

cupsd in CUPS before 1.3.8 allows local users, and possibly remote
attackers, to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) by adding a
large number of RSS Subscriptions, which triggers a NULL pointer
dereference.  NOTE: this issue can be triggered remotely by leveraging
CVE-2008-5184.
