SUSE-SA:2004:031: 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 SUSE-SA:2004:031 (cups).


The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) enables local and remote users to
obtain printing functionallity via the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP).
Alvaro Martinez Echevarria has found a remote Denial of Service condition
within CUPS which permits remote users to make the cups server unresponsive.
Additionally the SUSE Security Team has discovered a flaw in the
foomatic-rip print filter which is commonly installed along with cups.
It permits remote attackers, which are listed in the printing ACLs, to
execute arbitrary commands as the printing user 'lp'.
