Fedora 9 : cups-1.3.9-2.fc9 (2008-10917)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35079
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSecurity update to fix CVE-2008-5183. Also fixed in this update are a bug that caused cups-polld to fail to resolve hostnames, a bug that could cause libcups to get stuck in a loop, and incorrect form-feed handling in the textonly filter.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected cups package.
