openSUSE 10 Security Update : hplip (hplip-4516)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27267


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The deamon 'hpssd' could be exploited by users to execute arbitrary commands as root. hpssd only runs on systems that have HP all-in-one devices configured. In the default configuration the problem is not remotely exploitable as hpssd only listens on local interfaces (CVE-2007-5208).


Update the affected hplip packages.
