DSA-1811 cups, cupsys -- null ptr dereference

|Class: PATCH||Family: unix|
Anibal Sacco discovered that cups, a general printing system for UNIX systems, suffers from null pointer dereference because of its handling of two consecutive IPP packets with certain tag attributes that are treated as IPP_TAG_UNSUPPORTED tags. This allows unauthenticated attackers to perform denial of service attacks by crashing the cups daemon.
