The HP Tru64 UNIX implementation of "lpq" contains a locally exploitable buffer overflow.
"lpq" is used to examine the printer spool queue. A locally exploitable buffer overflow in "lpq" may permit a local attacker to gain elevated privileges and execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable host.
A local user may be able to gain elevated privileges and execute arbitrary code.
Apply a patch.
