Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in foomatic-filters could result in the execution of
arbitrary code.

Background
==========

The foomatic-filters package contains wrapper scripts which are
designed to be used with Foomatic.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-print/foomatic-filters
< 4.0.9 >= 4.0.9

Description
===========

The foomatic-rip filter improperly handles command-line arguments,
including those issued by FoomaticRIPCommandLine fields in PPD files.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PPD
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the system user "lp".

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All foomatic-filters users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=net-print/foomatic-filters-4.0.9"
