SUSE-SA:2006:026: foomatic-filters

High Nessus Plugin ID 21622


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:026 (foomatic-filters).

A bug in cupsomatic/foomatic-filters that allowed remote printer users to execute arbitrary commands with the UID of the printer daemon has been fixed (CVE-2004-0801).

While the same problem was fixed in earlier products, the fix got lost during package upgrade of foomatic-filters for SUSE Linux 9.3.

Only SUSE Linux 9.3, 10.0 and 10.1 still contained this bug.
