Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200904-20
(CUPS: Multiple vulnerabilities)

The following issues were reported in CUPS:
reported an integer overflow in the _cupsImageReadTIFF() function in
the 'imagetops' filter, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow
Aaron Siegel of Apple Product Security
reported that the CUPS web interface does not verify the content of the
'Host' HTTP header properly (CVE-2009-0164).
Braden Thomas and
Drew Yao of Apple Product Security reported that CUPS is vulnerable to
CVE-2009-0146, CVE-2009-0147 and CVE-2009-0166, found earlier in xpdf
and poppler.

Impact :

A remote attacker might send or entice a user to send a specially
crafted print job to CUPS, possibly resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the configured CUPS user -- by
default this is 'lp', or a Denial of Service. Furthermore, the web
interface could be used to conduct DNS rebinding attacks.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
