MDKSA-2003:060: LPRng

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the LPRng package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:060 (LPRng).


Karol Lewandowski discovered a problem with psbanner, a printer filter that
creates a PostScript format banner. psbanner creates a temporary file for
debugging purposes when it is configured as a filter, and does not check whether
or not this file already exists or is a symlink. The filter will overwrite this
file, or the file it is pointing to (if it is a symlink) with its current
environment and called arguments with the user id that LPRng is running as.
