This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-17
(HPLIP: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Two vulnerabilities have been found in HPLIP:
The 'hpmud_get_pml()' function in pml.c contains a boundary error
which could cause a stack-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-4267).
The 'send_data_to_stdout()' function in hpcupsfax.cpp creates
insecure temporary files (CVE-2011-2722).

Impact :

A remote attacker might send specially crafted SNMP reponses, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service
condition. Furthermore, a local attacker could perform symlink attacks to
overwrite arbitrary files.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
