Debian DLA-1288-1 : cups security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106953
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that there was an issue in the CUPS printer framework where remote attackers could execute arbitrary commands by sending POST requests to the CUPS daemon in conjunction with DNS rebinding. This was caused by a whitelisted 'localhost.localdomain' entry.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in cups version 1.5.3-5+deb7u7.
We recommend that you upgrade your cups packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
