Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Marc Deslauriers discovered that system-config-printer's cupshelpers
scripts used by the Ubuntu automatic printer driver download service
queried the OpenPrinting database using an insecure connection. If a
remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this
flaw could be exploited to install altered packages and repositories.
Update the affected python-cupshelpers package.
