Problem description

zen-parse discovered an exploitable buffer overflow in groff's preprocessor. If groff is invoked using the LPRng printing system, an attacker can gain rights as the "lp" user. Likewise, this may be remotely exploitable if lpd is running and remotely accessible and the attacker knows the name of the printer and it's spool file.
