CVE-2015-1158

Description

Cupsd uses reference-counted strings with global scope. When parsing a print job request, cupsd over-decrements the reference count for a string from the request. As a result, an attacker can prematurely free an arbitrary string of global scope. They can use this to dismantle ACLs protecting privileged operations, and upload a replacement configuration file, and subsequently run arbitrary code on a target machine.
