This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

hplip was updated to fix three security issues :

- Some local file overwrite problems via predictable /tmp
filenames were fixed. (CVE-2013-0200)

- hplip used an insecure polkit DBUS API (polkit-process
subject race condition) which could lead to local
privilege escalation. (CVE-2013-4325)

- hplip uses arbitrary file creation/overwrite (via
hard-coded file name /tmp/hp-pkservice.log).
(CVE-2013-6402)
