Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 802790
foomatic-filters-4.0.13 is available
Last modified: 2012-04-11 23:01:25 EDT
Changelog since 4.0.8:
* spooler.c: When using CUPS support option strings (5th command
line argument to a CUPS filter) of more than 512 bytes. For PPD
files with very many options this string can get very long (Thanks
to Yoshito Nishihara, yoshito dot nishihara at nts dot ricoh dot co
dot jp for reporting this).
* foomaticrip.c: If incoming PDF needs to be converted to PostScript
due to the filter command line not being a standard Ghostscript
command line, no separate PDF command line being supplied, or
options in the PPD being implemented by PostScript code, use
preferrably Ghostscript (with the "ps2write" device) for this
conversion as Ghostscript is better optimized for printing and
has a more sophisticated color management compared to Poppler.
* foomaticrip.c, renderer.c: SECURITY FIX: Use the mktemp shell
command/mkstemp() function to create the debug log file and the
renderer input data file (both files only generated when
foomatic-rip is un in debug mode) with file names with an
unpredictable part. The names are /tmp/foomatic-rip-XXXXXX.log and
/tmp/foomatic-rip-YYYYYY.ps where the XXXXXX and YYYYYY are
replaced by random strings. Thanks to Tim Waugh from Red Hat for
for the patch (bug #936, CVE-2011-2924).
* foomaticrip.c: Fixed build of foomatic-rip on systems without
D-Bus. Thanks to Richard Hughes (hughsient at gmail dot com) for
the quick fix.
