The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
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.
Update the affected packages.
