Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : cups (MDVSA-2010:233)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in cups :

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the web interface
in CUPS, allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of
administrators for requests that change settings (CVE-2010-0540).

ipp.c in cupsd in CUPS 1.4.4 and earlier does not properly allocate
memory for attribute values with invalid string data types, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free
and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a
crafted IPP request (CVE-2010-2941).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.9
(CVSS2#AV:A/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.5
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:C)
