Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : cups (MDVSA-2010:073-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in cups :

CUPS in does not properly handle (1) HTTP headers and (2) HTML
templates, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks and HTTP response splitting attacks via
vectors related to (a) the product's web interface, (b) the
configuration of the print system, and (c) the titles of printed jobs
(CVE-2009-2820).

Use-after-free vulnerability in the abstract file-descriptor handling
interface in the cupsdDoSelect function in scheduler/select.c in the
scheduler in cupsd in CUPS 1.3.7 and 1.3.10 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (daemon crash or hang) via a client
disconnection during listing of a large number of print jobs, related
to improperly maintaining a reference count. NOTE: some of these
details are obtained from third-party information (CVE-2009-3553).

Use-after-free vulnerability in the abstract file-descriptor handling
interface in the cupsdDoSelect function in scheduler/select.c in the
scheduler in cupsd in CUPS 1.3.7, 1.3.9, 1.3.10, and 1.4.1, when
kqueue or epoll is used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (daemon crash or hang) via a client disconnection during
listing of a large number of print jobs, related to improperly
maintaining a reference count. NOTE: some of these details are
obtained from third-party information. NOTE: this vulnerability exists
because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-3553 (CVE-2010-0302).

The _cupsGetlang function, as used by lppasswd.c in lppasswd in CUPS
1.2.2, 1.3.7, 1.3.9, and 1.4.1, relies on an environment variable to
determine the file that provides localized message strings, which
allows local users to gain privileges via a file that contains crafted
localization data with format string specifiers (CVE-2010-0393).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
