Fedora 8 : cups-1.3.4-2.fc8 (2007-2982)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 27822


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a remote code execution vulnerability in the IPP handling part of the CUPS scheduler, as well as several PDF handling security issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
