Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-150: LPRng

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the LPRng packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated LPRng packages resolving a temporary file vulnerability are now
available.

LPRng is a print spooler. LPRng includes a program, psbanner, that can be
used to produce Postscript banner pages to separate print jobs.

A vulnerability has been found in psbanner, which creates in an insecure
manner a temporary file with a known filename. A possible hacker could create a
symbolic link and cause arbitrary files to be written as the lp user.

Note: psbanner is not used by the default Red Hat Enterprise Linux LPRng
configuration.

Users that have configured LPRng to use psbanner should install these
updated packages, which contain a patch so that psbanner does not create
the temporary file.
