Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cups package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:062 (cups).


A Denial of Service (DoS) vulnerability was discovered in the CUPS printing
system by Phil D'Amore of Red Hat. The IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) that
CUPS uses is single-threaded and can only service one request at a time. A
malicious user could create a partial request that does not time out and cause a
Denial of Service condition where CUPS will not respond to other printing
requests. This can only be done if the malicious user can create a TCP
connection to the IPP port (631 by default).
This vulnerability has been fixed upstream in CUPS 1.1.19 and packages of
previous versions have been fixed to correct the problem.
