critical Nessus Plugin ID 21886
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote CentOS host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated CUPS packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(R) operating systems.

Chris Evans discovered several flaws in the way CUPS processes PDF files. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause CUPS to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3624, CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626, and CVE-2005-3627 to these issues.

All users of CUPS should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

Solution

Update the affected cups packages.
