Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2009-10-21 16:10:45 UTC
An use-after-free flaw was found in the way CUPS handled references in its
file descriptors handling interface. A remote attacker could, in a
specially-crafted way, query for the list of current print jobs for a
specific printer, leading to a denial of service (cupsd crash).

Upstream bug report:
