Description

Double free vulnerability in the process_browse_data function in CUPS 1.3.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted UDP Browse packets to the cupsd port (631/udp), related to an unspecified manipulation of a remote printer. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.
