A security issue [1] (CVE-2015-1158) has been found in cups < 2.0.3, allowing a remote attacker (with the possibility to send print request) to execute arbitrary code. As this is fixed in cups 2.0.3, I think we should upgrade as soon as possible. Note that the new version also fixes a XSS security issue (CVE-2015-1159) as well as a denial of service [2].
