The Dell Mini Project

Bug Description

Cupsys in hardy for the dell mini is in version 1.3.7-1ubuntu3 which is affected by several security vulnerabilities. The version in generic hardy ( 1.3.7-1ubuntu3) includes already the patches. So those should be ported to hardy for the mini.

  * SECURITY UPDATE: denial of service by adding a large number of RSS
    subscriptions (LP: #298241)

    image with a large height value
    - This issue was introduced in the patch for CVE-2008-1722.
    - debian/patches/CVE-2008-1722.dpatch: adjust patch to multiply img->xsize

cupsys (1.3.7-1ubuntu3.2) hardy-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/rules: Install the serial backend with 0700 permissions to make it
    run as root, since /dev/ttyS* are root:dialout and thus not accessible as
    user "lp". (LP: #154277)
