Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2006:026: foomatic-filters

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the foomatic-filters package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:026 (foomatic-filters).


A bug in cupsomatic/foomatic-filters that permited remote printer
users to execute arbitrary commands with the UID of the printer
daemon has been fixed (CVE-2004-0801).

While the same problem was fixed in earlier products, the fix got
lost during package upgrade of foomatic-filters for SUSE Linux 9.3.

Only SUSE Linux 9.3, 10.0 and 10.1 still contained this bug.
