Fedora 9 : cups-1.3.10-1.fc9 (2009-3753)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 36209


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes several security issues: CVE-2009-0163, CVE-2009-0164, CVE-2009-0146, CVE-2009-0147, and CVE-2009-0166. PDF files are now converted to PostScript using the poppler package's 'pdftops' program. NOTE: If your CUPS server is accessed using a hostname or hostnames not known to the server itself you must add 'ServerAlias hostname' to cupsd.conf for each such name. The special line 'ServerAlias *' disables checking (but this allows DNS rebinding attacks).

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.
