CBL Mariner 2.0 Security Update: cups (CVE-2023-4504)

high Nessus Plugin ID 193711


The remote CBL Mariner host is missing one or more security updates.


The version of cups installed on the remote CBL Mariner 2.0 host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the CVE-2023-4504 advisory.

- Due to failure in validating the length provided by an attacker-crafted PPD PostScript document, CUPS and libppd are susceptible to a heap-based buffer overflow and possibly code execution. This issue has been fixed in CUPS version 2.4.7, released in September of 2023. (CVE-2023-4504)

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