FreeBSD : CUPS -- local information disclosure (30cea6be-1d0c-11d9-814e-0001020eed82)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 36362


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Certain methods of authenticated remote printing in CUPS can disclose user names and passwords in the log files.

A workaround for this problem is to set more strict access permissions on the CUPS logfiles.


Update the affected package.
