New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew cups packages are available for Slackware 12.0, and -current to fix security issues. The change from CUPS 1.2.x to CUPS 1.3.x was tested here, but if you're on a completely secured internal network these issues may be less of a risk than upgrading. If your IPP port is open to the internet, you'd be advised to upgrade as soon as possible (or firewall the port at the gateway if you're not in need of printer jobs coming in from the internet).
SolutionUpdate the affected cups package.
