Fedora 10 : cups-1.3.11-2.fc10 (2009-11062)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 42965


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This fixes CVE-2009-2820, an XSS vulnerability in the web interface.
This also updates cups to the latest stable release on the 1.3 branch, and fixes a problem with number-up handling.

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.
