Fedora 8 : cups-1.3.6-2.fc8 (2008-1901)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 31173


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This updates CUPS to the latest stable version. Upstream version contains a fix for a security issue that may cause cups daemon to crash via special browse requests (CVE-2008-0882, #433758, SA28994, STR#2656).

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 cups package.
