Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cups (MDKSA-2004:164)

High Nessus Plugin ID 16081


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


iDefense reported a buffer overflow vulnerability, which affects versions of xpdf <= xpdf-3.0 and several programs, like cups, which use embedded xpdf code. An attacker could construct a malicious payload file which could enable arbitrary code execution on the target system.

The updated packages are patched to protect against these vulnerabilities.


Update the affected packages.
