|Bugzilla:||732106: CVE-2011-3170 cups: gif_read_lzw() does not properly handle first code word in an LZW stream, which may lead to arbitrary code execution|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
The gif_read_lzw function in filter/image-gif.c in CUPS 1.4.8 and earlier does not properly handle the first code word in an LZW stream, which allows remote attackers to trigger a heap-based buffer overflow, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via a crafted stream, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-2896.
Not affected. This flaw was introduced in CUPS due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-2896, which was not applied to any CUPS packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
