The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.05 / MAIN 5.05, has cups packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A localhost.localdomain whitelist entry in valid_host() in scheduler/client.c in CUPS before 2.2.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary IPP commands by sending POST requests to the CUPS daemon in conjunction with DNS rebinding.

- A buffer overflow issue was addressed with improved memory handling. This issue is fixed in macOS Mojave 10.14.6, Security Update 2019-004 High Sierra, Security Update 2019-004 Sierra. An attacker in a privileged network position may be able to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-8675, CVE-2019-8696)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
