Fedora 7 : cups-1.2.12-10.fc7 (2008-2897)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 31816


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Three security issues have been fixed in this update: * A buffer overflow when processing GIF files * A heap-based overflow in a CUPS helper program, used for searching documentation * A buffer overflow when processing HP-GL/2 files

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.
