Insecurities in traceroute and lpr packages


New vulnerabilities have been found in the following programs:

1.  traceroute

2.  lpr packages (lpd, lprNG, etc)

Both of these allow escalation of local user privileges (i.e. a
logged-in user can become root if s/he uses the appropriate exploit).
Please check if your distribution has updates for either/both these
packages and upgrade if so.
