Gentoo security team summarizes:

The following issues were reported in CUPS:

A remote attacker might send or entice a user to send a specially crafted print job to CUPS, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the configured CUPS user -- by default this is "lp", or a Denial of Service. Furthermore, the web interface could be used to conduct DNS rebinding attacks.
