Fedora 11 : cups-1.4.2-26.fc11 (2010-2743)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47293


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update addresses a denial of service security issue (CVE-2010-0302) as well as fixing several other small problems: * classes.conf is now updated when a class member is deleted. * the usermode dependency has been removed. * the udev rules are now installed in the correct location. * cups-config now has no multilib conflict. * the ipp backend now clears the printer status on completion. * cupsGetNamedDest() is no longer confused by old configuration files. * the scheduler no longer treats SIGPIPE as a filter error. * the gcrypt threading patch has been reverted. * the package no longer owns filesystem-owned directories.

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.
