The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability in the hpssd tool was discovered where it did not
correctly handle shell meta-characters. A local attacker could use
this flaw to execute arbitrary commands as the hplip user.
As well, this update fixes a problem with some HP scanners on Mandriva
Linux 2007.1, particularly HP PSC 1315, which wouldn't be detected and
also fixes a problem with HP 1220 and possibly other models when
scanning via the OpenOffice.org suite.
Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
Update the affected packages.
