Fedora 10 : cups-1.3.9-4.fc10 (2008-10895)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 38122


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Security update to fix CVE-2008-5183. Also changed in this update: * a bug that caused cups-polld to fail to resolve hostnames has been fixed
* a bug that could cause libcups to get stuck in a loop has been fixed
* the dnssd backend has been removed as it is not working correctly and can prevent printers being added

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.
