cups-filters (1.0.18-2.1+deb7u2) wheezy-security; urgency=high
* Backport upstream fixes for buffer overflows on size allocation in texttopdf.
(CVE-2015-3258, CVE-2015-3279)
2014-03-11 - Didier Raboud <>
cups-filters (1.0.18-2.1+deb7u1) stable-security; urgency=high
* Backport security fix from cups-filters 1.0.47:
pdftoopvp: SECURITY FIX for CVE-2013-6474, CVE-2013-6475, and
CVE-2013-6476: Introduction of gmallocn and gmallocn3 to protect against
arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the "lp" user via
malicious PDF files. Also restrict the directory from where OPVP drivers
can get loaded (Closes: #741318)
2012-11-20 - gregor herrmann <>
cups-filters (1.0.18-2.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Fix "debian/copyright is misleading/incomplete": try to get it closer to
reality. Most of the work was done by Arthur de Jong, thanks.
(Closes: #682752)

cups-filters (1.0.18-2) unstable; urgency=low
[ Fabian Greffrath ]
* Add patch to avoid trimming the results of FcFontSort(), as this may
miss some reasonable candidates under certain circumstances. BTW,
fix passing a non-pointer as a pointer to "result". (Closes: #670055)

* New upstream release
- pdftops: Allow selection whether Ghostscript or Poppler is used
at runtime, setting the "pdftops-renderer" option to "gs" or
"pdftops". This way one can switch to Poppler per-queue if there
are incompatibilities with certain PostScript printers.
- pdftops: Allow setting an upper limit for the image rendering
resolution, also at runtime, setting the option
"pdftops-max-image-resolution-default" to the desired limit in dpi.
"0" means no limit. Default limit is 1440 dpi. This prevents slow
processing by the printer if very high resolutions are used or
if the printing resolution is mis-detected by the pdftops filter.
- pdftops: Fixed crash by wrong usage of sizeof() function when adding
"Collate" to the fifth command line argument for the "pstops" CUPS
filter call (LP: #982675).
- pdftops: Removed newline from copies value when reading it from
the "%%PDFTOPDFNumCopies" entry of the incoming PDF file.
- pdftops: Silenced compiler warning about ignoring the return
value of the write() function.
- pdftops: Added a crash guard.
- pdftops: Start determining the printing resolution with
cupsRasterInterpretPPD(), this is the most reliable as often
the choice names of the "Resolution" option are marketing names
with higher numerical values than the actual resolution. Also
ignore error exit values of cupsRasterInterpretPPD() as the
function can error out after having found the resolution.
- pdftops: If printing resolution is determined by
cupsRasterInterpretPPD() do not stick on 100 dpi if the
resolution cannot be determined (LP: #984082).
- pdftopdf: Fixed segmentation fault when printing selected pages
("page-ranges" option, LP: #980673).

cups-filters (1.0.16-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Drop libtiff5-dev, just use libtiff-dev, this fixes the FTBFS due to
incompatibility with cups.
