Package : cups-filters
CVE ID : CVE-2015-3258 CVE-2015-3279

It was discovered that the texttopdf utility, part of cups-filters, was
susceptible to multiple heap-based buffer overflows due to improper
handling of print jobs with a specially crafted line size. This could
allow remote attackers to crash texttopdf or possibly execute arbitrary
code.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.0.18-2.1+deb7u2.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
