Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS : cups vulnerabilities (USN-2341-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2014-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Salvatore Bonaccorso discovered that the CUPS web interface
incorrectly validated permissions and incorrectly handled symlinks. An
attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass file permissions and
read arbitrary files, possibly leading to a privilege escalation.

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

Solution :

Update the affected cups package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.1
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:ND)
