CBL Mariner 2.0 Security Update: cups (CVE-2023-32324)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 193712


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-2023-32324 advisory.

- OpenPrinting CUPS is an open source printing system. In versions 2.4.2 and prior, a heap buffer overflow vulnerability would allow a remote attacker to launch a denial of service (DoS) attack. A buffer overflow vulnerability in the function `format_log_line` could allow remote attackers to cause a DoS on the affected system. Exploitation of the vulnerability can be triggered when the configuration file `cupsd.conf` sets the value of `loglevel `to `DEBUG`. No known patches or workarounds exist at time of publication. (CVE-2023-32324)

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