Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The SuSE Security Team found a vulnerability in html2ps, an HTML to

insecurely. This problem can be exploited when html2ps is installed
as filter within lprng and the attacker has previously gained access
to the lp account.
These problems have been fixed in version 1.0b3-1.1 for the current
stable distribution (woody), in version 1.0b1-8.1 for the old stable
