A new version of CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) fixes a number of known security vulnerabilities detailed at:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3639
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3640
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3641

Code:
This update fixes three vulnerabilities in the SGI image format filter, the
  texttops filter, and the HP-GL and HP-GL/2 plotter format filter.  All three
  of these could result in a denial of service, and the plotter filter issue
  could possibly be used to execute code as the print spooler user.

A new CUPS package for VL 5.9/5.9.1 is available in the testing repository.  A new CUPS package for VL 6.0 is in the patches repository.
