Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:116: 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-2004:116 (cups).


Chris Evans discovered numerous vulnerabilities in the xpdf package, which also
effect software using embedded xpdf code:
Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-2.0 and xpdf-3.0. Also programs
like cups which have embedded versions of xpdf. These can result in writing an
arbitrary byte to a possible hacker controlled location which probably could lead to
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2004-0888)
Also, when CUPS debugging is enabled, device URIs containing username and
password end up in error_log. This information is also visible via 'ps'.
(CVE-2004-0923)
The updated packages are patched to protect against these vulnerabilities.
