Fedora 17 : cups-1.5.4-18.fc17 (2012-19606)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update addresses two security issues :

- CVE-2012-5519 (privilege escalation for users for the
CUPS SystemGroup group or via polkit) is fixed by moving
certain configuration keywords into a separate file,
cups-files.conf, which cannot be modified by cupsd.

- CVE-2012-6094 (configuration issue with IPv4 vs IPv6)
has been fixed by dropping support for systemd socket
activation via IP sockets.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
