Updated hplip packages fix security vulnerabilities :
It was discovered that the HPLIP Polkit daemon incorrectly handled
temporary files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to
overwrite arbitrary files (CVE-2013-6402).
It was discovered that HPLIP contained an upgrade tool that would
download code in an unsafe fashion. If a remote attacker were able to
perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to
execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-6427).
