Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:104: cups

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-2003:104 (cups).


A bug in versions of CUPS prior to 1.1.19 was reported by Paul Mitcheson in the
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) implementation would result in CUPS going into
a busy loop, which could result in a Denial of Service (DoS) condition. To be
able to exploit this problem, a possible hacker would need to be able to make a TCP
connection to the IPP port (port 631 by default).
The provided packages have been patched to correct this problem.
