Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2003:0014: lprold

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the lprold package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2003:0014 (lprold).


The lprm command of the printing package lprold shipped till SUSE 7.3
contains a buffer overflow. This buffer overflow can be exploited by
a local user, if the printer system is set up correctly, to gain root
rights.
lprold is installed as default package and has the setuid bit set.

As a temporary workaround you can disable the setuid bit of lprm by
executing the following tasks as root:
- add '/usr/bin/lprm root.root 755' to /etc/permissions.local
- run 'chkstat -set /etc/permissions.local'
Another way would be to just permit trusted users to run lprm by
executing the following tasks as root:
- add '/usr/bin/lprm root.trusted 4750' to /etc/permissions.local
- run 'chkstat -set /etc/permissions.local'

Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
Then, install the package using the command 'rpm -Fhv file.rpm' to apply
the update.
