Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

CVE-2017-18248 It was found that by submitting a print job with an invalid username, the CUPS server can be crashed, when D-Bus support is enabled (which is the case for Debian).

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.5.3-5+deb7u8.

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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
