Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0580-01 - The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for Linux, UNIX, and similar operating systems. It was discovered that CUPS administrative users who are permitted to perform CUPS configuration changes via the CUPS web interface could manipulate the CUPS configuration to gain unintended privileges. Such users could read or write arbitrary files with the privileges of the CUPS daemon, possibly allowing them to run arbitrary code with root privileges.
