Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-04-02 08:32:46 UTC
From ${URL} :

cups-browsed is daemon which browses the Bonjour broadcasts of shared, remote CUPS printers and makes the 
printers available locally. Sebastian Krahmer discovered it was possible to use malicious broadcast 
packets to execute arbitrary commands.

Original report:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

Again and again: No, that's wrong for so many reasons.

Do something like this instead:

Arch teams, please test and mark stable:
