Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Sebastian Krahmer reported a bug in the cupsomatic and foomatic-rip
print filters, used by the CUPS print spooler. An attacker who has
printing access could send a carefully named file to the print server
causing arbitrary commands to be executed as root. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2004-0801 to this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
