Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cups (MDKSA-2001:048)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

The version of cups shipped with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 has a problem
where when a user prints a multi-page PostScript file with embedded
pictures, the pages following the first with the picture are all
printed on the same page, one on top of the other. From multi-page
Abiword files (only text) only the last page is printed. This update
resolves this bug. As well, the upstream 1.1.7 release of cups fixes
some security issues.
