The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Updated cups packages fix security vulnerability :
In CUPS before 1.7.4, a local user with privileges of group=lp can
write symbolic links in the rss directory and use that to gain
'@SYSTEM' group privilege with cupsd (CVE-2014-3537).
It was discovered that the web interface in CUPS incorrectly validated
permissions on rss files and directory index files. A local attacker
could possibly use this issue to bypass file permissions and read
arbitrary files, possibly leading to a privilege escalation
(CVE-2014-5029, CVE-2014-5030, CVE-2014-5031).
