The remote print service is potentially affected by an information
According to its banner, the version of CUPS installed on the remote
host is 1.7.x prior to 1.7.4. It is, therefore, potentially affected
by an information disclosure vulnerability.
A flaw exists in the 'get_file' function within the file
'scheduler/client.c' regarding the handling of symlinks. This could
allow a local attacker to cause normally protected files to be
accessible via the web interface.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
