Fedora Core 2 : cups-1.1.20-11.11 (2005-122)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 16351


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


A problem with PDF handling was discovered by Chris Evans, and has been fixed. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (www.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0888 to this issue.

FEDORA-2004-337 attempted to correct this but the patch was incomplete.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
