Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:165: 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-2005:165 (cups).



A vulnerability in CUPS would treat a Location directive in cupsd.conf as
case-sensitive, permiting attackers to bypass intended ACLs via a printer name
containing uppercase or lowecase letters that are different from that which was
specified in the Location directive. This issue only affects versions of CUPS
prior to 1.1.21rc1.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
