The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in cups :
CUPS 1.4.4, when running in certain Linux distributions such as Debian
GNU/Linux, stores the web interface administrator key in
/var/run/cups/certs/0 using certain permissions, which allows local
users in the lpadmin group to read or write arbitrary files as root by
leveraging the web interface (CVE-2012-5519).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
