Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:097: 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-2004:097 (cups).


Alvaro Martinez Echevarria discovered a vulnerability in the CUPS print server
where an empty UDP datagram sent to port 631 (the default port that cupsd
listens to) would disable browsing. This would prevent cupsd from seeing any
remote printers or any future remote printer changes.
The updated packages are patched to protect against this vulnerability.
