Vulnerability Assessment Details
CUPS: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-25
(CUPS: Multiple vulnerabilities)
CUPS makes use of vulnerable Xpdf code to handle PDF files
(CVE-2004-1125). Furthermore, Ariel Berkman discovered a buffer
overflow in the ParseCommand function in hpgl-input.c in the hpgltops
program (CVE-2004-1267). Finally, Bartlomiej Sieka discovered several
problems in the lppasswd program: it ignores some write errors
(CVE-2004-1268), it can leave the passwd.new file in place
(CVE-2004-1269) and it does not verify that passwd.new file is
different from STDERR (CVE-2004-1270).
The Xpdf and hpgltops vulnerabilities may be exploited by a remote
attacker to execute arbitrary code by sending specific print jobs to a
CUPS spooler. The lppasswd vulnerabilities may be exploited by a local
attacker to write data to the CUPS password file or deny further
There is no known workaround at this time.
All CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-print/cups-1.1.23"
