Synopsis :

The remote printer service is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of CUPS installed on the remote
host is earlier than 1.4.4. Such versions are affected by several
vulnerabilities :

- The patch for STR #3200 / CVE-2009-3553 was not
complete. A remote client can cause a denial of service
by causing the CUPS server to reference an already
freed resource. (STR #3490) (CVE-2010-0302)

- The CUPS daemon may be vulnerable to certain cross-site
request forgery (CSRF) attacks, e.g., malicious IFRAME
attacks. (STR #3498) (CVE-2010-0540)

- An unprivileged process may be able to cause the CUPS
server to overwrite arbitrary files as the root user.
(STR #3510) (CVE-2010-2431)

- The CUPS daemon is vulnerable to a heap corruption
attack as the 'textops' filter does not verify the
results of memory allocations. It is possible this
may lead to arbitrary code execution. (STR #3516)
(CVE-2010-0542)

- The CUPS daemon is vulnerable to a denial of service
attack if compiled without HAVE_GSSAPI. (STR #3518)
(CVE-2010-2432)

- The CUPS daemon is vulnerable to an information
disclosure attack as an attacker can view portions of
uninitialized memory by a specially crafted URL.
(STR #3577) (CVE-2010-1748)
