FreeBSD : cups -- remote code execution and DNS rebinding (736e55bc-39bb-11de-a493-001b77d09812)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 38705
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionGentoo security team summarizes :
The following issues were reported in CUPS :
- iDefense reported an integer overflow in the _cupsImageReadTIFF() function in the 'imagetops' filter, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-0163).
- Aaron Siegel of Apple Product Security reported that the CUPS web interface does not verify the content of the 'Host' HTTP header properly (CVE-2009-0164).
- Braden Thomas and Drew Yao of Apple Product Security reported that CUPS is vulnerable to CVE-2009-0146, CVE-2009-0147 and CVE-2009-0166, found earlier in xpdf and poppler.
A remote attacker might send or entice a user to send a specially crafted print job to CUPS, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the configured CUPS user -- by default this is 'lp', or a Denial of Service. Furthermore, the web interface could be used to conduct DNS rebinding attacks.
