CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : cups
SUMMARY   : Denial of service vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-11-07 15:34:00
ID        : CLA-2003:779
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

DESCRIPTION
 Cups[1] (Common UNIX Printing System) is an open-source, freely
 available and cross-platform printing solution for UNIX
 environments.
 
 It has been reported that the IPP daemon from the Cups package can
 under some circumstances enter a loop and consume excessive CPU
 resources, causing the service to become slow and unresponsive.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all cups users upgrade their packages.
 
 IMPORTANT: after the upgrade, it is necessary to manually restart the
 service if it is already running. To do so, execute the following
 command as root:
 
 /sbin/service cups restart
