The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A bug in versions of CUPS prior to 1.1.19 was reported by Paul
Mitcheson in the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) implementation would
result in CUPS going into a busy loop, which could result in a Denial
of Service (DoS) condition. To be able to exploit this problem, an
attacker would need to be able to make a TCP connection to the IPP
port (port 631 by default).
The provided packages have been patched to correct this problem.
Update the affected packages.
