Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : cups update (USN-2839-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

As a security improvement against the POODLE attack, this update
disables SSLv3 support in the CUPS web interface.

For legacy environments where SSLv3 support is still required, it can
be re-enabled by adding 'SSLOptions AllowSSL3' to
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

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 :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.1
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.2
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:TF/RC:UR)
