openSUSE Security Update : cups (cups-2102)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 45099


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


lppasswd when running setuid or setgid still honors environment variables that specify the location of message files. Local attackers could exploit that to gather information by using crafted format strings (CVE-2010-0393).

The previous fix for a use-after-free vulnerability (CVE-2009-3553) was incomplete (CVE-2010-0302).


Update the affected cups packages.
