Scientific Linux Security Update : cups-filters on SL7.x x86_64

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


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way the
process_browse_data() function of cups-browsed handled certain browse
packets. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted browse
packet that, when processed by cups- browsed, would crash the
cups-browsed daemon. (CVE-2014-4337)

A flaw was found in the way the cups-browsed daemon interpreted the
'BrowseAllow' directive in the cups-browsed.conf file. An attacker
able to add a malformed 'BrowseAllow' directive to the
cups-browsed.conf file could use this flaw to bypass intended access
restrictions. (CVE-2014-4338)

After installing this update, the cups-browsed daemon will be
restarted automatically.
